Virtual Research Help Meeting

Schedule an appointment to meet for a 30-minute Zoom appointment with Laura Sorvetti, Reference Specialist, to get help with your research. If you need to meet at another time, email us at archives@calpoly.edu to set up an appointment. 

Setting up an appointment

You are welcome to come to look at the collections when we are open. 

Confirm our hours and contact us with a day and time you would like to come in. When you contact us, let us know which materials you would like to look at. We usually need about 1-2 days' advanced notice in order to pull the material for your appointment.

Contact information:

  • email: archives@calpoly.edu
  • phone: 805-756-2305

If you don't know which materials you want to look at, that is ok! Let us know what your research topic is, and we can pull some materials we think will be helpful.
