Fifty Years of Jerome Library, 1967-2017


In 2017, the BGSU campus and community celebrated 50 years since the official opening of the Wm. T. Jerome Library building on November 3, 1967. To mark the occasion, we created this digital exhibit charting the history and milestones of the University Libraries.

This exhibit was created by Center for Archival Collections staff member Nick Pavlik in the fall of 2017, with revisions in the spring of 2020. It builds upon and supersedes "Library Memories," a previous digital exhibit created by Center for Archival Collections staff and student employees Rex Childers, Dana Nemeth, and Enoch Wu in 2010.
