Music Library & Sound Recordings Archives
Directions to the ML/SRA
The Music Library and Sound Recordings Archives is located on the 3rd floor of the William T. Jerome Library on the Bowling Green State University campus. See the campus map for more details.
Exit I-75 at the Bowling Green exit 181; go west on Wooster (toward the town). Turn right on Mercer Rd. Turn left on Ridge and proceed for a couple of blocks. The library is the 9-story building on the left with murals on the east and west sides. There is a parking lot (Lot N) adjacent to the library building with access from Ridge St.
If you need to get to our loading dock, exit as above. Drive west on Wooster past the 3rd traffic signal, at Mercer Road. After passing Mercer, turn right (north) onto the 2nd drive into campus; that drive goes between fraternity housing and reads “one way.” That drive will end at a T intersection, and you will see the library looming to the left front of you. Jog to the left and then quickly to the right and drive down the alleyway between the Library and the 3-story fine art building. Our loading dock will be on the left.
From Route 25:
Follow Rt. 25 into Bowling Green; turn east on Wooster St. Follow Wooster St. to Mercer Rd.; turn left. Take the first left (Ridge St.). The library is the 9-story building on the left with murals on the east and west sides.
Parking for the library is in Lot N, immediately adjacent to the library. Visitors may park in the marked spots nearest to the library and pay for parking (dollar bills, coins, or credit/debit cards) at the kiosks on the south end of the lot. Alternatively, visitors can stop at the Visitor Information Center to get a parking pass for the full day for $5.00.
