IADT Chicago - Library

IADT Chicago Library

IADT Chicago provides library and information resources for students and faculty that support the institution's academic programs. IADT maintains a library that houses a growing collection of approximately 5,500 book volumes and 90 periodical subscriptions to support the major programs of study as well as general education courses.

Our library’s multimedia resources consist of over 500 videos, DVDs and CDs. We also have a campus bookstore that sells books and supplies used in the courses taught at IADT, as well as a variety of IADT merchandise. The bookstore attempts to keep a balance of inventory between new and used books whenever possible. The bookstore also coordinates book buy-back periods at the end of each term.

The CECybrary is an Internet-accessible information center committed to facilitating the lifelong learning and achievement of the Career Education Corporation (CEC) community. This "virtual library" contains a collection of full-text journals, books and reference materials; links to websites relevant to each curricular area; instructional guides for using electronic library resources and much more.

The "virtual" collection is carefully selected to support students as they advance through their programs of study and include quality, full-text, peer-reviewed articles from scholarly journals and full-text electronic books. Instructional materials for students and faculty are designed to enhance information literacy skills.

A full-time librarian located at Career Education Corporation manages the CECybrary. The librarians at the various CEC schools participate in selecting the electronic resources and website links and help prepare the instructional materials that are on the website.
