Dean's Remarks to Friends of the Library
Cal Poly Pomona has numerous outstanding academic programs, but we believe they all come together in one place: the University Library.
It is the library that draws together students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members from across all of our disciplines. They turn to the library to investigate ideas, work on assignments and collaborate with one another. In other words, they come to the library to learn.
Everyday about 8,000 users come through our library. We’ve grown significantly from our modest beginnings as a small reading room at the original Voorhis campus. Today, the University Library is a modern facility that embraces technological advancements and electronic resources that increase access to a broader range of information.
Today’s library is a reflection of the 21st century University. Resources are available on campus and online. Providing digital content, tools and services are critical in this fast-changing world, where reliable information is often required 24 hours a day. That’s why we offer round-the-clock online assistance and use state-of-the-art technology to deliver the learning materials that scholars need. Technology and information change swiftly, and we need your help to keep this library current, robust and accessible. So please consider becoming a friend of the library and together we can build a library for tomorrow.
