About the Library

The Conrad N. Hilton Library at the Hyde Park, NY campus houses an outstanding collection of over 60,000 cataloged print volumes, 1,000 DVDs, 150 periodical subscriptions, and 80 subject-specific research databases containing over 24,000 e-journals and e-magazines. While there is a strong specialization in the culinary field, the collection also includes a generous selection of liberal arts materials that support the college’s ever-expanding educational programs. Additionally, the Hilton Library is the site of the Archives and Special Collections which houses the CIA's collections of historical menus and rare books. Library staff members are available to help with research in person as well as by phone, text, e-mail, and online chat.

The Library Learning Commons, located within the library building, includes a variety of workspaces equipped with technology to support a diverse range of learning activities. Students have many opportunities to practice and enhance their academic and hands-on skills, as well as develop study strategies necessary for success.
