The Libraries at CCS

The Libraries at CCS can support you in many ways. The Library website has been completely remade and Library staff have developed subject-specific content, packaged into a multi-page guide, for each department. Department guides can be embedded into your Blackboard courses and will provide your students with the basic, relevant resources for starting their research, all within the Blackboard format (directions HERE).

The Libraries also offer faculty support via a variety of other means, including: providing access to course reserves (form to request course reserve material HERE); purchasing materials for addition to the general collection (form HERE); and providing instruction sessions on information literacy, visual literacy, material research and more (form HERE). If you have questions about library instruction or resource support for your classes, please email Library Director Becca Pad at rpad@collegeforcreativestudies.edu

As always, the Libraries are home to a variety of materials, including books, eBooks,databases, and streaming film. Please contact library@collegeforcreativestudies.edu with any questions or send us a chat anytime during the Main Library’s business hours.
