Reserve a Study Room

The library has two rooms that students, faculty, and staff can reserve for group study, collaborative work, meetings, or any time a space is needed during library hours.  To learn more and to make a reservation, visit https://cia.libcal.com/.

Schedule an appointment with a librarian

You can schedule an appointment with a librarian to get one on one help with all of your research! Choose either a 30 or 60 minute meeting that works best for your schedule. This service is available to any CIA community member. We look forward to meeting with you.

Ask for Library help!

We are always here to help you. Call, stop by, text, start a chat session, or ask a question online. The library staff will respond to online questions as soon as possible.

Request Library resource purchases

Current CIA faculty, staff or students may fill out our library request form if you would like us to add an item or resource to our collection. We will consider your requests and follow up with you regarding purchasing decisions.

Interlibrary Loan Services

If an item is not available through our databases or local catalog, please check the OhioLINK and SearchOhio catalogs before considering ILL requests. Please complete the ILL request form at https://cia.libwizard.com/f/ILL and provide as much information as possible. Please be aware that the loaning library may charge a fee that you, or your department, may be asked to pay. If you have any questions about ILL requests, email library@cia.edu.
