Carefully archived away at the Libraries of
The Claremont Colleges are countless items
documenting people, research, and events
significant in the history of the Claremont
Colleges. Using the Claremont Colleges
Digital Library ( CCDL), patrons have access
to these materials that have been digitized.
Students can browse or perform a keyword
search. Results displayed include a thumbnail
image for quick reference. Using the My
Favorites feature, any media file, including
audio and video, can be added to a personal
folder for later viewing, or imported into
Power Point for a classroom presentation.
The CCDL now has seven collections that
total more than 5,000 items, covering topics
on history, science, art, music, government
and political science. Soon topics will
include religion and the social sciences.
