We are excited to launch the Virtual Library Fund through the CPP crowdfunding platform. This fund is dedicated to purchasing e-books and hot spots in support of remote learning and student success. Since early 2020, all of us, including the University Library, have had to adapt to using these virtual tools. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the library continues to serve CPP students and faculty with access to over 2.5 million e-books, technology lending, workshops, virtual meetings, and 24/7 chat.
In August, I joined Cal Poly Pomona's University Library as the new library dean. In my short time here, I have learned so much about our dedicated teaching faculty and our amazing students. Cal Poly Pomona students work so hard to earn their degrees and realize their dreams. Like many of our students, I was a first-generation college student so I know the power and promise of a college degree.
In gratitude to my parents and my teachers, I donated to the Virtual Library Fund to ensure students have access to electronic books and to technology during this time when we are all working and learning remotely. If you haven’t yet, please join us in this effort to ensure we have even more resources to support CPP students!
On behalf of the University Library, I thank all of you who have generously donated to this fund!
Dean, University Library
