Computers too crowded on the first floor? Not enough room for your group up on 7? Want to take a break from 8? Come check out the study space on the 5th Floor of Jerome Library. The Reading Room at the Center for Archival Collections has five tables to gather your group around, plus two computer workstations connected to a copier/printer. We also have two scanners in case your projects need some last minute images. We even have exhibits for when you need a bit of a study break. Currently we are displaying materials documenting women and sports at BGSU.
The Center for Archival Collections is an archives and manuscript repository within the University Libraries. Our primary mission is to actively acquire and make accessible to researchers historical materials for five unique collections: Northwest Ohio, University Archives, Historical Collection of the Great Lakes, Rare Books and Special Collections, and the National Student Affairs Archives.
Just remember, you do not have to be using our collections in order to study here. We have a friendly staff and our Reading Room is usually pretty quiet. This makes us a great alternative study space anytime of the year. We are open 8 am to 9 pm Mondays and 8 am – 5 pm Tuesdays through Fridays.
We hope to see you sometime soon on 5!
