Self-Guided Library Tour

Take a tour of the University Library.

Welcome to the Cal Poly Pomona University Library!

Libraries are considered to be the heart of the University. While serving approximately 8,000 individuals daily, we are honored to participate in the creation of an effective learning environment for students.

We believe that the Library should be a home away from home for students, faculty and staff. We also believe that the Library should serve as an important connection to the community.

University Library Website

You can access Library resources from anywhere through the University Library website.

From the University homepage, you can find the Library homepage by clicking on the search bar to open a drop-down menu and click on Library.



To begin your research, you can use the OneSearch search bar on the Library Homepage. OneSearch allows you to explore all library resources including books, articles, and more all on one platform.


You can search for specific titles, authors, journal titles, or by keywords. You can refine your results by using the filters on the left-hand side of the screen including available in the Library, peer-reviewed/scholarly, full-text online, material type (e.g. book, journal, article, newspaper, reference entry), date, and more!
