Named for Civil-War era General Lucius Bierce, whose personal library constituted the first collection of the University Libraries, Bierce Library opened in its present four-story facility on Buchtel Common in 1973. Within this library are resources and services that support the humanities, fine and applied arts, social sciences, and business. Amenities such as a coffee shop, group project areas, viewing and listening carrels, and private study rooms provide an atmosphere conducive to learning.
