The Library is a curated center for information access and retrieval and is an integral part of MIAD’s learning experience. Students, faculty, staff and alumni have on-site access to 19,000 books and DVD’s, 82 current periodicals, online databases, reserve items, and an impressive and up-to-date collection of career materials. The library collection supports MIAD’s curriculum, and is extensively focused on art and design. In general, library materials circulate for a period of 4-weeks, with the possibility of two renewals. The MIAD I.D. serves as a library card. The library is a member of the SWITCH Consortium, one of eight area colleges sharing their library resources. Using the online catalog, TOPCAT, students are just a click away from more than 600,000 additional books and DVDs that can be requested online and delivered to MIAD the next school day.
