Group Study Rooms Available in Bierce Library

Bierce Library (centrally located on campus, directly between Central Hower and the Student Union) has a total of 39 group study rooms.  The rooms are available for individual or group study.  The maximum capacity for most of the rooms is four students but about six of the rooms will accommodate 6 or more students.

The group study rooms at Bierce are not locked, so anyone can go into a room that is not occupied.  Bierce has an online booking system for their group study rooms,  Each student is permitted to reserve a group study room for up to 6 hours per day.  The rooms can be reserved in 30 minute blocks.  The booking system will allow students to book rooms in advance for the whole semester although students do have to book each room a day at a time.

Since the study rooms are not locked sometimes someone else will be using a room that has been reserved.  When that happens the student who has reserved the room can ask the person to leave or they can go to the circulation desk and ask a member of the library staff to ask the person to leave.

Here is a link to the web page with information about the group study rooms at Bierce:  http://libguides.uakron.edu/studyrooms.  The web page includes the links the students can use to book the rooms.  These rooms are available to any students on campus.

Many thanks to Kyle Passmore in the Law Library for providing this information!

CQE Clinic Volunteer Training – Friday, September 9, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.

Our next free Certificate of Qualification for Employment (CQE) clinic is Saturday, September 10, 2016!  We’re very excited to be providing opportunities for ex-offenders in Summit County to take a step toward gaining employment and independence!

We are looking for students to volunteer from 8:00am-12:45pm on Saturday, September 10, 2016.  The clinic will be held at the Akron Alliance Fellowship Church [688 Diagonal Rd, Akron, OH 44320]. The time you volunteer can be applied toward your graduation requirement as pro bono limited means hours.

There will be a mandatory volunteer training on Friday, September 9, 2016 from 4:30-6:00pm for first timers. The time you are at training will count towards your pro bono limited means hours as well. For those who have completed the training once before, you are more than welcome to attend the training for a refresher. However, you may not count the training towards your pro bono limited means hours again.

If you’re interested in volunteering or have any questions, please e-mail Brittany at bfw7@zips.uakron.edu. You can also learn more about the clinic at our website: http://www.uakron.edu/law/clinical/cqe-clinic.dot.
