Senior Projects and Microforms

Senior Projects prior to  Fall 2009 are on microfiche (cards) and available near Research Help on the 2nd floor.  After renovation relocation is complete they will be available in the Crandall Gym service point.  You can identify these older Senior Projects and post-2009 content by using OneSearch.  

Senior Projects AFTER Fall 2009 are available digitally online at the DigitalCommons@Calpoly.   You can search by title author or keyword on DigitalCommons or you can filter by department if you wish.

How Do I Find both older and newer Senior Projects in OneSearch ? Use ADVANCED search: set lefthand pull down to LOCAL COLLECTIONS and type in Senior Projects. Then type in author and/or title information as relevant in another box. This will retrieve Senior Projects on microfiche prior to Fall 2009. To find digital Senior Projects (Fall 2009 and after) the DigitalCommons@CalPoly provides a streamlined avenue of access. 

Other microforms listed in OneSearch will not be available during the renovation.  

After the renovation relocation is complete you will be able to use the microform machines in Crandall.  Instructions are posted near near the machines but personalized help is available from librarians and LibRATs (student assistants) when the Research Help Desk is staffed.
