Decker Library

Welcome to Decker Library! Please note that the Library will be closing at 1:00pm Wednesday 11/27 and will remain closed through Sunday 12/1. We will reopen Monday 12/2 at 8:30am.

We empower the MICA community as knowledge seekers and support research as a creative process.

There's a ton of information out there. The librarians are here to help you navigate information sources and build your research skills as creative professionals. Each student has their very own program librarian.
