About Us

General Description

Special Collections and Archives collect, organize, preserve, and make available Cal Poly Pomona's rare books and archival collections. The collections center around themes relevant to the mission of the university and are available for use by all interested users including students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the general research community. Special Collections and Archives actively acquires new materials on a regular basis in our subject strengths. We house the University Archives, the Southern California Wine and Wine Industry Collection, the Pomona Valley Historical Collection, and the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library.

See our page of Collection Descriptions for more detail or search the Library Catalog for our holdings. We have digitized some of our materials which can be viewed online in our Gallery. Please keep in mind that the collections listed in the catalog and gallery are not comprehensive so it is best to reach out to a Special Collections staff member if you are not finding what you need.
