Welcome to the Library!

Welcome to the UA University Libraries!
This guide was created to support summer HSSR program students using the Bierce Library and its resources for research projects. The tabs on the left will guide you through the various resources.
  • The Bierce Library is open to high school students during regular Library hours
  • This research guide will provide HSSR program students with information about using the Bierce Library in-person, the Akron-Summit County Public Library, and the Internet to locate credible resources for their research assignments. 

There are multiple ways to get help. Feel free to contact me or another library colleague for assistance. Best wishes with your projects,
Marilia, UA librarian
