Apologies for the inconvenience.

Wed., Sept. 14, 4:15pm | Honnold/Mudd Library Founders Room | 2nd floor

Panelists: David Menefee-Libey, Pomona Department of Politics; Andrew Busch, CMC Department of Government; Amanda Hollis-Brusky; Pomona Department of Politics; John J.Pitney, CMC Department of Politics; Matthew Wolfson, Pomona Senior, Major in Politics.

No matter where voters are on the political spectrum, few would disagree that the Tea Party has greatly influenced electoral politics and debate on how our country is governed. In turn, members of this evolving movement cite no influence and authority greater than the Founders and how their intentions are expressed via the vessels of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. To emphasize this influence, House Republican adherents of the Tea Party read the Constitution out loud on the Floor of the Capitol on January 11th of this year. Tea Partiers have also promoted awareness of their views by distributing the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and by promoting Constitution Day. This year, in what has become an annual tradition at Honnold/Mudd Library, Claremont Constitutional Discourse will recognize Constitution Day with a panel, powered by a diverse group of four professors and one student with various scholarly specialties and political points of view, who will come together in the relative political quiet of the Founders Room* to discuss the Tea Party's use of the much debated age-old theme of Founders' intent.

And yes, we will be serving tea, as well as other refreshments. And free copies of the book "The Declaration of Independence and other Great Documents of American History" (which, of course, includes The Constitution) will be available as long as supplies last.


*Named for William L. Honnold, the mining engineer who gave the original money to build Honnold Library.

WiFi Access in Honnold/Mudd

We know that many of you are having problems with internet access, especially wifi access, in the library, as well as across the campuses. We have heard from staff at Harvey Mudd, who manage the Colleges' connection to the Internet, that there are problems outside of Claremont affecting our access to Internet resources. At this point they do not know what's causing the problem nor do they have an estimate of when the matter will be resolved. Like you, we hope it will be soon, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Library Open Regular Hours on Labor Day

Special collections will be closed, but the rest of the Library will be open regular hours.

Special Collections Closed for Labor Day Weekend

Special Collections in Honnold/Mudd Library will be closed Saturday - Monday, Sept. 3-5, for the Labor Day weekend.

Honnold/Mudd Library will be open regular hours over the weekend and on Monday.

JSTOR Service Alert

On Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10, JSTOR will be performing site maintenance that requires a "read-only" period for these two days. During this scheduled maintenance, you will be able to search, browse, and access and download PDF files for content in JSTOR. You will not be able to save citations, reset passwords, create or update MyJSTOR accounts, or purchase articles.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your patience.
