Welcome to Archives and Special Collections at BGSU

Archives and Special Collections at BGSU contains collection finding aids from the Browne Popular Culture Library (BPCL), Center for Archival Collections (CAC), and the Music Library and Bill Schurk Sound Archives (MLBSSA). Finding aids are detailed inventories of collections that provide historical context and describe collection contents.

Requesting Materials

Each finding aid contains a link to request materials from the collections. Each repository has its own location, hours, and policies for providing access to its collections. Please consult the repository with questions about using the materials. Please note that collections are non-circulating and must be used in the repository’s reading room. In some cases the collections are stored off-site and require advance notice for retrieval. While some finding aids link to digitized versions of select collection items, viewing a collection in its entirety will require visiting the repository.

Not Finding What You’re Looking For?

Please note that we are still transferring our finding aids to this site. As we do so, we encourage you to also search our legacy Finding Aids site. If you have further questions, please contact the appropriate repository.
