The Library collection totals about 78,000 print volumes and more than 130,000 online volumes through EBSCO eBooks. In addition to print and eBooks, the library subscribes to more than 50,000 electronic and print journals as well as several major newspapers. While the print collection is strong in religion and theology, the Library is aggressively expanding the collection in a wide range of academic disciplines to support intellectual advancement in an academic environment and in support of the research and instructional mission of the University.
During the academic year, the Library is open seven days a week and provides access to research computers, group study rooms, as well as a convenient printer/copier room. The library catalog, eBook collection, and research databases are available 24 hours a day at www.cui.edu/library.
The Library offers several services such as classroom instruction and in-library workshops on information literacy and research skills, reference help, and the opportunity to borrow and/or obtain books and articles from countless other libraries through inter-library loan (ILL).
