The mission of the CCS Library is to foster the relationship between research, critical thinking, artmaking, and design ideation. To achieve that end, the Library staff is committed to developing distinctive collections, curating relevant electronic resources, and providing high-quality instruction and patron services.
The Library features a vast collection of resources, both digital and physical. Online resources include ebooks, e-journals, databases, digital images, and streaming videos that can be accessed from any computer on or off-campus. The physical Library houses print books, videos, and periodicals that support all areas of study at the college, as well as an extensive collection of material samples and color reference tools.

The Library also has computers and scanners, group study space, and private and group study rooms. For more specific information concerning Library hours, collections, research guides, and services, visit the Library website.
Current students, faculty, and staff may access subscription online resources using CCS credentials; physical materials may be checked out by current CCS community members and, on a more limited scale, alumni. Visit the libguide Alumni Resources for details on check-out privileges.
