Peruse the otter sculptures created for the North Coast Otters Public Arts Initiative in Cal Poly Humboldt Digital Archives. This celebration of otters consisted of 3-foot sculptures, decorated by a variety of artists, displayed throughout Humboldt and surrounding counties, and then auctioned off to support otter studies and student internship projects. See 4 images of each of the 108 beautiful sculptures.

Access to textbooks and other required readings is essential to student success in our courses. However, that access is not always available, as these items can sometimes be prohibitively expensive for our students to access. Cal Poly Humboldt Library's Textbook on Reserves Program helps to improve student success on campus by providing free, easy access to textbooks and other required readings. Our Course Reserves Collection includes physical books, eBooks, and other course materials available for free check out to students enrolled in those classes. Learn more about our program by clicking here.
Faculty & Instructors: now is the time to get your requests for textbooks in for the Spring 2023 semester! We can accept instructor copies, will place books from the Library stacks on reserves, and we can purchase new texts as well, both physical and digital. Get your request in by Tuesday, January 3rd to give us the best opportunity to have materials available for students by the time instruction begins.
