Finding Books with Your Artist

Contemporary Artists Index logoThe Contemporary Artists Index was created by library staff at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Enter a name into the search box to find artists featured in exhibition catalogs and other publications.


If you find a book of interest in the CAI, you'll need to find out if Drexel University has it! Copy the title of the book and paste it into DragonSearch. Click Search. Refine Your Search to Library Catalog or Content Type Book/Ebook. If we don't have it, use EZ Borrow (scroll down to log in) to get a copy.
