The Claremont Colleges Library has been selected to receive a grant from Steelcase Education supporting the installation of an active learning classroom as part of the Active Learning Center (ALC) program. This award of $65,000, plus design and instructional services support, will improve the Keck Learning Room (KLR) In the revamped classroom, students will have opportunities for hands-on engagement with primary sources and digital scholarship. Faculty will also use the classroom to learn new strategies for active learning and inclusive pedagogy through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).

Steelcase received 961 proposals and awarded just 15 grants; only 8 (less than 1%) went to institutions of Higher Education. The Claremont Colleges Library is thrilled to be among these. The Steelcase award will allow us to complete renovations and improvements to the Keck Learning Room over the summer in time for a fall semester opening.

The Claremont Colleges Library, with the guidance of Pomona Advancement and the collaboration of six other Southern California libraries, has received a Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) grant for the project "Digitizing Southern California Water Resources," which will digitize and help preserve primary source documentation of water history in California. This is one of 17 projects awarded a CLIR 2016 Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives grant, a program funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This project will create a digital archive of California and U.S. western water that will support and inspire scholarship through multiple disciplinary lenses, including public health, engineering, urban planning, legal history and the array of disciplines that fall under environmental studies. The grant team will gather together documents from public and academic libraries across Southern California, making them available digitally for scholars everywhere.

Library personnel involved in this successful grant include Carrie Marsh, Director of Special Collections and Libraries, who is one of the principal investigators on the grant; Lisa Crane, Western Americana Manuscripts Librarian, who will serve as project director; and Tanya Kato, digital project manager for the CLIR grant.

For full details, see the press release on the Pomona College website.
