Library Service Updates: Home

Library staff will post important information & updates about changes or disruptions to library services or hours here.  

CIA will be closed July 3 and July 6 in observance of Independence Day.

The library is closed until early August. When we reopen, only CIA faculty, staff, and students will have access to the library. 
If you have items checked out, we have extended Question formyour due date and you will not get fines. Faculty and staff can return items in the book return by Entrance B during building hours. Faculty and staff who need library items should use the question form to request items. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
Library staff is working partially from home and will be monitoring the online help question form. We are also conducting an inventory of the collection.
Please use the form in the box just below this section. 
Complete the form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Librarians are still available for virtual / chat appointments. Click here to schedule.

Returning books, games, videos, and any other physical items

Students should hold on to library items for now. Students who are returning to CIA in the fall may keep the items until they return or they can contact the library to make other arrangements. The library is not charging overdue fines for materials returned at any point before September 15, 2020, but replacement charges will be assessed for items that aren't returned by that date. Faculty and staff can return items in the book return by entrance B during building hours.

Contact the library staff with any questions or concerns using the chat service or the question form linked above.
