University Libraries is open Monday through Sunday during the academic year. See our hours of operation here.
We currently have several courses available for Brightspace enrollment:
UA faculty, staff, and students can request Akron-owned library materials online and retrieve them by appointment from Bierce Library. Requestable material includes the general collections, Test Prep, Curriculum Center, and Media.
The requested material can either be mailed to a home address, retrieved from Bierce Library’s lobby, or by appointment curbside pickup. MediaTech items cannot be mailed. Library patrons will receive a direct email about these retrieval procedures.
Items requested through curbside pickup or home delivery can be returned in the library's return drop boxes outside the building or brought to the Service Desk on the 1st floor.
