The Browne Popular Culture Library (BPCL), founded in 1969, is the most comprehensive archive of its kind in the United States.  Our focus and mission is to acquire and preserve research materials on American Popular Culture (post 1876) for curricular and research use.

Our collection strengths include research materials on popular fiction, popular entertainment, and the graphic arts. As an archive, our collection does not circulate, with the exception of our DVD collection.  A large part of our collection is searchable via the library catalog and we maintain research guides and finding aids for browsing the remainder of the collection.
