About the Library

The CIA Texas’s 2,338-square-foot campus library, located on the third floor of the main building adjacent to the staff and faculty offices, includes a collection of more than 6,100 cataloged books, as well as computer workstations that allow access to the electronic resources available through libraries at all CIA campuses.  The library is also home to the Learning Strategies Center, which provides tutoring services, testing accommodations, and disability services.

Library resources are also available from the Conrad N. Hilton Library at the Hyde Park, NY campus. The library houses an outstanding collection of nearly 70,000 volumes, 1,900 DVDs and videos, and over 200 current periodical subscriptions. Although there is a strong specialization in the culinary field, the collection also has liberal arts materials supporting the college's ever-expanding educational programs. Hilton Library staff are available to help and provide research assistance. Students at CIA Texas are welcome to contact us via email or make an appointment for a web conference. Go to

The Library at CIA Texas is committed to providing excellent resources, services and programs to serve the learning and teaching needs of students and faculty in support of the CIA's mission to provide the world's best professional culinary education.
