These collections contain fully text-searchable digital copies of BGSU’s annual athletics media guides, the original copies of which are housed at the University Archives in the University Libraries’ Center for Archival Collections (CAC).

Published annually by the BGSU Athletics Department, the media guides (also referred to as press guides or prospects) contain general information pertaining to the upcoming season for a specific BGSU team. Items commonly included in the media guides include team and staff rosters, season schedules, coverage of immediate past seasons, featured stories and profiles on individual coaches and players, historical information, photographs, and a wide array of statistics.

While the CAC’s holdings of original media guides are quite extensive, they are not exhaustive. The CAC welcomes all inquiries concerning potential donations of original media guides that may help complete its holdings. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the CAC at 419-372-2411 or
