Getting Started with Pop Culture Research

Getting started with popular culture research is not always easy, since a fair amount of it is interdisciplinary and it is often difficult to find authoritative or scholarly information on more contemporary topics. Hopefully, this will give you some ideas to get started.

How to Use the BPCL

  • Our hours are more limited than the main floor, but we're open late on 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/scanner available for duplicating materials that cannot be checked out.  There is a charge for copying, but no charge for scanning.
  • We also have a planetary scanner for use.
