Decker Library

Welcome to Decker Library! Service disruption: Please note that printing services are currently down. Other offices that offer printing services include Art Tech Center (1208 W. Mount Royal) and Postal and Print (1st floor Bunting).

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.

Notice of Possible Service Disruptions: As you may be aware, the library is in the process of migrating to a new platform to better meet the needs of our campus and users. We are hopeful that this process will go smoothly _however_, service disruptions and closures may occur in the future. We will post notices as far in advance as we are able and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make these critical improvements. Please reach out to us at or for any questions.
