What? No more access?!

Congratulations! You've reached that milestone known as graduation!

Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, your access to some of your favorite databases--Naxos, Grove Music Online, RILM, etc.--will be coming to an end.

Don't panic, dear graduates! We have some solutions to help keep you connected from free online resources, to local libraries, to affordable individual subscriptions to a number of services as well.

As always, however, your trusty librarians are here to help you! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send us e-mails.


Special Borrower

All CIM alumni remaining within the greater Cleveland metropolitan area have borrowing privileges at the Robinson Music Library immediately following their graduation date.

Details for this semester-long borrowing period may be found here.



JSTOR offers non-affiliated patrons the option to buy access to nearly 80% of their digital collection on a monthly or yearly plan through their JPASS service.

Or sign up for the Register and Read program and have access to up to 3 articles every 2 weeks.
