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 cataloged collection of over 60,000 volumes, 1,000 DVDs and videos, 150 current periodical subscriptions, and 80 subject-specific research databases containing over 24,000 e-journals and e-magazines. Search Omnivore for full-text articles and ebooks. Print books can be requested thru Interlibrary Loan. 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
