Off-campus access
Most online resources on the Library website are available from anywhere off-campus.
Some databases will ask you to login. Use your culinary username and password that you use for email, MainMenu, Moodle, etc.

Interlibrary Loan
If there is a book or article that we do not have in the library we will get a copy for you through Interlibrary Loan, a free service for all CIA students, staff & faculty.
