Welcome to the Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library's faculty resource page.
The library endeavors to provide the best traditional and innovative resources and services for faculty. This guide is designed to provide you with basic information about our resources and services. The librarians at CIA are always willing to sit down for an in-person meeting to discuss how we can help you with instruction support, reference and research needs, as well as an overview of collections and other services for you and your students. For additional information, contact the library staff. We look forward to working with you.
Topics in this guide:
Services & Collections • Teaching & Classroom Support • Library Instruction • Course Reserves
Library Mission Statement
The Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library, an intellectual and cultural resource for the college, actively supports a rigorous visual arts and design education, nurturing the scholarly, artistic, and professional development of CIA students and community members.
Classes are always welcome in the library! Bring your students down to draw in the library or to look for inspiration! Hold small group meetings or one-on-one conferences with students in our study rooms. Need people to test out your interactive media work or video games? Need a location for your creative writing students to do a reading? We would love to host that! The library also schedules displays of student class work and we can plan an instruction session or display of library materials for you. You and your students are always welcome in the library.
