Decker Library

Welcome to Decker Library! Please note we will be operating with limited hours until January 22nd. Please see the hours section at the bottom of this page.

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. Find your librarian.
