Visiting the Library
The Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library’s primary mission is to serve current students and employees at the Cleveland Institute of Art, as well as visitors from our partner libraries at Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Rock Hall Library & Archives. Additionally, we welcome current students and employees from any OhioLINK member institutions.
The public, visiting scholars, and art and design professionals are welcome to use the collections for art and design research on weekdays during regular business hours. Visitors wishing to use the library during nights or weekends should call in advance. Access to Special Collections and the Institute's Archives for non-CIA researchers is by appointment only and limited to weekdays between 9am and 5pm as librarians are available. Anyone 16 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult while in the library.
Library computers are reserved for CIA faculty, staff, and students; visitors must ask at the desk for guest login access. Visitor use of the computers is strictly limited to library research activities. Printing is restricted to CIA and partner library patrons.
All non-CIA library visitors must sign in and show ID at the library’s front desk.
Your CIA ID is your library card, and is required to borrow library materials at the Gund Library and at any of our partner libraries. If you have not activated your library account, please contact the library staff.
To view your library record, you must have a PIN account set up, review the instructions. This will allow you to:
