TIPS:  Jannes Library book stacks are open!   To find books, browse our catalogYou can then come to the library.  Bring your student ID/swipe card which is required for entering the building and for checking out books.

Mobius Consortium lending and borrowing  You can search the Mobius catalog and place requests using the usual process.  If the owning library for that item is not lending, you will see a message that your request cannot be filled.

Online resources are available from off-campus, as you know.  Follow the online resources link, select your desired database, and an authentication prompt will follow.  Authentication is linked to your library account (it's not the same as your KCAI email login and password).  You will find instructions on authenticating on the tab labeled "Logging in to Resources" on the above-linked guide.

New faculty members: You must contact the library in order to establish a library account... you are not in our library circulation system until you do so.  You need to have a KCAI ID card to get started.  Important:  you must have a library account to borrow books from Jannes, to place requests to borrow from other libraries, AND to access our online resources.  Access your library account by visiting our catalog

If you have any questions please do be in contact with us.  We miss you!
