Library books on shelves

Library

The Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library has collections specifically developed for the visual artist, designer, and craftsperson. The library's collections support CIA's accredited degree programs, with a special focus on providing materials for studio-intensive instruction.

Visiting the Library

Everyone is welcome in CIA's Gund Library. Our primary mission is to serve current students, faculty and staff of the Cleveland Institute of Art and our partner libraries - Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Rock Hall Library & Archives. As an OhioLINK participant, we also welcome current students, faculty and staff from any OhioLINK library.

The general public, visiting scholars and art and design professionals are welcome to use the collections on-site on weekdays during regular business hours. Visitors wishing to use the library during nights or weekends should call in advance. Anyone 16 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult while in the library.

Donate

Many alumni and friends choose to support the Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library by making a donation or by donating gift-in-kind items such as books.

To find out more about either type of donation, contact Cristine Rom, Library Director, at 216.421.7440 or crom@cia.edu.
