Libraries

Bierce Library

Bierce Library is open during the summer for material pick-ups, returns, and printing. See hours.

In the fall, study rooms in Bierce Library will be available for UA students. You will be able to schedule them online.

  • Each study room is equipped with a whiteboard and markers for study purposes. 
  • Larger learning studios can be scheduled in Bierce Library for socially distanced group study. 

Additionally, we are reconfiguring the entire third floor of Bierce Library for individual, quiet study. The space will be regularly monitored to support independent study. All group study will be redirected to a different floor in the library.

Science & Technology Library

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and continue to provide safe and sanitary library spaces, University Libraries will not open the Science & Technology Library for the fall semester.

Course reserves and other highly used Science & Technology Library resources and expertise will be temporarily moved to Bierce Library.

The entire Science & Technology Library collection will remain available to University of Akron students and faculty with increased digitization of resources and swift turnaround time for resource use or pick up in Bierce Library.
