The DAAP Library is a dynamic and inclusive physical space within the College of DAAP that fosters intellectual curiosity, sparks the creative imagination, and has the technology tools necessary for exploration, discovery, and innovation.

DAAP librarians carefully select and curate dynamic research resources in all formats to build a forward-looking and responsive collection. Also, we strive to provide expert public services such as friendly and efficient walk-up service, in-depth, one-on-one research consultations, and informative, group instruction sessions. 

The overall aim of the DAAP Library: To weave DAAP Library resources and services into the teaching, learning, and research fabric of DAAP. We also welcome and foster independent scholarship and work to build mutually beneficial partnerships with members of the greater UC community and the art and scholarly community of Cincinnati and beyond.
