Welcome to the University of Akron!

Welcome to the University of Akron Libraries!

The mission of the University Libraries is to provide resources, services, and expertise to support and enhance teaching, learning, and research. 

We are excited and delighted to meet you. I am the nursing librarian and I provide in-depth research assistance to help students with assignments, or other questions.

A warm welcome to UA!
