Getting Started

When starting your research think broadly about your topic. You might want to start by searching in Encyclopedia Britannica or survey texts on your topic. Once you've built a framework, then you're able to focus your research by finding relevant books, in the library catalog, and articles, in artnet. If you need help at any point the library staff is here to help, contact us,

      ·       Inclement weather: If KCAI classes are cancelled due to weather, then Jannes Library and Lab are closed. Check the college’s home page for news of class cancellation due to weather.    Phone 816-802-3390 (library) or -3365 (lab) for information on hours and deviation from the published schedule.
