Course Reserves Policy: Kindles for Course Reserves


In 2020, CIA Gund Library received a grant from the State Library of Ohio to purchase five Kindle Fire e-readers to provide select course reserve titles in eBook format. 

General information for CIA Library Kindles

Library Kindles are available for select course reserves offerings. Kindles are available to borrow as 1-week loans.

Kindle books owned by CIA Library do not appear in the catalog. Please refer to the list below for current titles. If a Kindle title appears as an eBook in the catalog, it is an additional non-Kindle licensed eBook. CIA Library Kindle titles listed on this page can only be accessed from CIA Library Kindles.

Kindles can only be logged into via CIA Library's Amazon account. No other accounts can access these library devices.


Interested in adding a title? Please contact Laura Ponikvar, CIA Library Director, at lponikvar@cia.edu if interested in adding a resource to CIA Library Kindles.

How to check out a Kindle

Visit the library's front circulation desk and ask someone at the desk if any Kindles are available to check out.

If one is available, you can check it out like any other library material by presenting your CIA ID.

Kindles are loaned for one week, no renewals. We will check that all items that went out with the Kindle are returned after one week. This includes:

  • Kindle
  • Kindle tablet cover
  • Kindle carrying case
  • USB cord
  • USB wall adapter
