100 Years of Claremont

June 15 through September 7, 2007

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Claremont in October 2007, the Honnold/Mudd Library will exhibit photos and other items from Special Collections which provide a retrospective of the history of Claremont. In conjunction with this exhibit, we will be launching the City of Claremont History Collection as part of the Claremont Colleges Digital Library. This on-line collection will contain historical photographs from Special Collections' Claremontiana collection of local history.

New Resource for Musicians

Honnold/Mudd Library now has a Yamaha Electronic Piano (with headphones) to be used with the Library's music scores and other music material. The piano is conveniently located by the music scores (Mudd side, third floor, north).

Perfect for beginning students and experienced players alike, the YDP-213 delivers authentic piano sound with exceptionally natural response. With 6 different instrument Voices that utilize our AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) stereo sampling tone generation, and featuring an expressive GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keyboard, this instrument is a joy to play, practice and perform on. It also features 64-note polyphony, three foot pedals and a built in speaker system. Dual voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, while a 1-track song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances.
