Claremont Colleges Special Collections is the library’s principal repository for print and manuscript primary sources. The collections number nearly 200,000 volumes and more than 11,000 linear feet of a diverse array of literary and historical manuscripts, personal papers, and college archives that span more than 900 years of human history. The collections are available for research, teaching, and study in person, and, increasingly, digitally in the Claremont Colleges Digital Library.
The Claremont Colleges Library’s digital collection at California Revealed consists of moving images and audio recordings from the 1930s through the present. The collection includes home movies, speeches by Congressman Jerry Voorhis, and recordings related to the Claremont Colleges.
