Have you ever had a question about a piece of art you’ve seen or read about and you don’t trust Wikipedia with the answer? Thankfully, the CMA is always here to help. Over at the Ingalls Library our “Ask a Librarian” staff is waiting to hear from you and to answer any questions you may have about the museum or the art world.
The Ingalls Library, a nationally recognized art research library, is home to more than 440,000 volumes of scholarly publications about art from all over the world and to more than 500,000 images. So, if you have a research project or just love learning about art, this is the place for you. We are open to the public and have a staff of librarians ready to assist you.
At the Ingalls Library we realize that sometimes you need a question answered but you don’t always have time to make it to the museum. That’s why we built the “Ask a Librarian” feature right into our Web site.
This is a place you can go to get your question answered from one of our librarians without even leaving your home. How convenient is that? We even have a Twitter page to keep you updated about the latest Ingalls Library news. If you prefer to speak directly with a librarian you can do so by calling the reference desk at 216-707-2530. So stay tuned and feel free to ask us a question day or night!
