Center for Archival Collections

The Center for Archival Collections is open to researchers Monday through Friday 8-5.

We recommend that all researchers contact us ahead of your visit so we can have materials ready for you to begin research when you arrive.

If you are unable to visit the CAC in person, the staff is available to answer questions via email or chat Monday through Friday.

There are several ways to gain access to our materials: by searching the BGSU catalog, browsing or searching our finding aids, searching our website, or by searching our digitized content made available in the Digital Gallery and ScholarWorks. If you still do not find what you are looking for, ask us! Feel free to call, email, or Ask Us.

The Center for Archival Collections is an archive and manuscript repository within University Libraries at Bowling Green State University. Our collection strengths include our manuscript collections, the Historical Collection of the Great Lakes, our Rare Books & Special Collections, and the National Student Affairs Archive. We are also the home of the BGSU University Archives, and house local records from the nineteen counties of Northwest Ohio. Our collections can be used for scholarly, political, and family and genealogical research, and we welcome BGSU students and faculty, local residents, as well as international scholars.
