BGSU One Day has come to a close. Thank you so much to those who made a contribution! If you would still like to make a gift to support BGSU students please click this banner.
University Libraries

The William T. Jerome Library is considered the academic heart of campus through advancing teaching, learning, research, collaboration and discovery to empower a diverse community of users to contribute to the public good.

An undeniable role that the University Libraries fills is providing resources for student success. Private support helps University Libraries meet the needs of all stakeholders from students seeking help with statistics, to distance learners utilizing online resources for an upcoming paper, to faculty conducting nationally recognized research.

Library Enrichment Fund

The Library Enrichment Fund provides for purchasing of materials, collections, facilities improvements, student and faculty support and other emerging needs. This fund also helps support special events designed to encourage use of the Jerome Library, student employee recognition events and leadership and professional development opportunities for library faculty and staff.

The University Libraries Student Employee Scholarship

More than 200 student employees of the University Libraries experience financial need, and each year, multiple deserving student employees are awarded scholarships of $1,000. Our goal as the University Libraries is to continue to award even more scholarships every year, especially during the current pandemic when financial need can be even greater.

The Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a collaborative learning environment that supports academic success by providing tutoring, academic coaching and study skills in virtually every subject on campus. Historically, 49% of the students that visit The Learning Commons maintain at or above a 3.0 GPA.

Bill Schurk Sound Archives General Support Fund

With almost a million recordings, the Music Library & Bill Schurk Sound Archives (MLBSSA) is the largest collection of popular music in an academic library in North America. Our recordings include 45s, 78s, 33s, LPs, reel-to-reel tapes, cassette tapes and CDs. The sound recording collection is supported by books, scores, video/film, hard-to-find periodicals, fanzines, promotional material and archival collections.
