Health and Safety for Artists: Home

The daily work of many artists involves the use of a variety of substances that can be harmful to one's health, so it is critical that artists know the risks they might encounter and take the necessary precautions for a safe working environment.

The online catalog

The Gund Library's catalog is part of a shared catalog with CWRU and CIM. After you get the results to your search, if you want to know only what is in the Gund Library, you will need to modify the search to limit your results to CIA's library.  

CIA patrons may borrow books from the CWRU and CIM libraries.
