Announcing Our New Library Search

After a year of selection, planning, and implementation, we're excited to reveal the Claremont Colleges Library's new Search feature. We encourage you to try our new Search bar on the library homepage to get a feel for the new layout and results page. Here are a few perks of the new library Search:

• One inclusive search of the library's catalogs, our most popular databases and subscriptions, as well as resources from libraries around the world!
• Streamlined resource sharing for expanded access to local, regional, and global resources.
• Improved library account including online access to renew books borrowed through the Claremont Colleges Library as well as Resource Sharing.
• Updated and modern interface for a more friendly library experience.
The new library Search is easy to use and should be intuitive for most users. If you need help getting started, check out: Get to Know the New Library Search - a growing resource, where you'll find frequently asked questions and step-by-step tutorials. Don't hesitate to Ask Us if you need one-on -one support.

We are always looking to make improvements! Please feel free to contact us with questions and suggestions you may have regarding our system enhancements at

In the Limelight: California Citrus

This summer, Special Collections presents In the Limelight: California Citrus, an exhibition centered on the history of the citrus industry in the Claremont area, curated by Grace Rodriguez (CMC 2015). Our inspiration stems from the recently-acquired Oglesby Citrus Label collection, which consists of over 80 labels as well as several books related to label collecting and history.


Read more on Pictures & Conversations, the Special Collections blog.

The exhibition is on view through August 22 in the 2nd floor Honnold foyer during the Library's summer hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30am-7pm, and Saturday, noon-7pm).

Night Owls- Library Open 24/7

Today marks the start of Night Owls! The Library will remain open 24 hours until Friday, May 16 at 6pm (view library hours here).
