Check it Out @ the Cal Poly Pomona Library, Summer 2019
The University Library started its first spring semester ever in 2019, with many students, faculty, staff, and visitors attending the variety of unique events held in the library. We ended fall 2018 with the inaugural Equine History Conference in the University Library. This event brought scholars who specialize in equine subjects, such as horseracing and equine-related science over the course of a 3-day conference. The NHPRC Grant Project Concludes event highlighted the 900 linear feet of archival material processed and 53 finding aids. We had numerous speakers throughout the semester. The campus community learned about how modern suburbia affects minority communities in A Tale of Two Suburbs: The Haves vs. the Have Nots as well as tips and tricks from Dr. Lamphier on writing a novel. Dr. Campbell is back in the library, talking about his new book inspired by his doctoral dissertation in Finding New Connections in the Bank War. The university community celebrated publications of books from faculty, staff, students, and alumni who authored or edited a book, in the past year, at the Golden Leaves awards. The library hosted several fashion events in Trends. Genres. Creations such as Piruli Design. We have new archival collections available in the University Library. Come learn the new details of the collection that we processed in the NHPRC project in New Archival Collections Open for Use. We have beautiful photos of spring events, National Library Week 2019 and Focus on Finals. Look inside this issue for a tour @ Cal Poly Pomona’s University Library.
