CDI: History

Located at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains in the city of Claremont, California, only 35 miles east of Los Angeles, The Claremont Colleges are a geographically contiguous set of five top-ranked liberal arts undergraduate colleges & two graduate institutions, uniquely configured to support & encourage interdisciplinary study.

The Claremont Colleges Library, a part of The Colleges supporting organization, the Claremont University Consortium, support all seven academic institutions across a wide spectrum of disciplines. The library holds more than 2 million print volumes & provides access to a vast array of electronic resources, both subscription & Open Access.

The Claremont Colleges Digital Library was established in 2004 by the Academic Deans of The Claremont Colleges upon their approval of recommendations from cross-colleges Task Force. The digital library went live in April of 2006 & is managed by the library’s Center for Digital Initiatives.

Additional support & oversight is provided by the Center for Digital Initiatives Advisory Board comprised of faculty & staff from across The Claremont Colleges.
