BGSU 1910 Are We What We Eat?: Popular Culture Library

This is a compilation of library and Internet resources designed to help students taking BGSU 1910 Are We What We Eat? with their class assignments.

Browne Popular Culture Library

The Browne Popular Culture Library is located on the 4th floor of Jerome Library.

Cookbook Collection

The Browne Popular Culture Library houses a large collection of cookbooks, from various time periods and places. They may be very useful for the projects for this course.


Remember, these books must be used in the Browne Popular Culture Library. They may not be taken off the fourth floor of Jerome Library and they can't be checked out.

How to Use the BPCL

  • Our hours are more limited than the main floor, but we're open late on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.
  • We're an archive/repository, so most of our materials cannot be checked out.
  • Most of our collection is not open for browsing. You need to request materials at our reference desk with your university ID or a photo ID. You will also need to fill out a request form.
  • The reference collection is open for browsing! It's the best place to get started with popular culture research.
  • We have a copier available for copying materials that cannot be checked out - you just need a BG1 card. A scanner is also available, but at no charge.
