Do you know why Cowles Mountain was once referred to as “S” Mountain? Did you know that the rarest species of pine tree in the United States grows only in San Diego and on Santa Rosa Island?

There’s certainly a lot I don’t know about San Diego, and I bet the same goes for you. In case you’re curious and would like to learn more, the SDSU Library’s reference librarians have assembled an informative exhibit titled “From Sand to Mesa to Sea: San Diego in Reference.” This exhibit features resources relating to the San Diego region and covers everything from history to geology to culture to potential jobs. San Diego resources–from guides to the Torrey Pines State Reserve, through San Diego trivia, to the municipal code–are organized on two bookshelves between the reference desk and the NRA Packages mural. Drop by and take a look. And please ask questions.
