Library . Your Library Account
Your CIA ID is your library card, and it is required to borrow library materials at the Cleveland Institute of Art Library and at any of our partner libraries. If you have not activated your library account, please contact the Library staff.
To view your library record, you must have a PIN account set up. After you have a PIN, you will be able to see what you have checked out from any of our partner libraries and any OhioLINK library, track your OhioLINK requests, and renew items online.
Instructions for creating a PIN are available in two formats. You can choose to read the instructions, or you can choose to watch a video of the instructions. Or, you can always ask any member of the library staff for help.
Courtesy notices, overdue notices, and bills are sent to your CIA email address.
