Special Collections, Honnold/Mudd Library
Special Collections, Honnold/Mudd Library, holds unique and rare collections that are available to the students, faculty, and staff of the various Claremont institutions, and to scholars, researchers, and members of the community.
Special Collections materials are available by appointment, or if the materials are located in Honnold/Mudd, they are available during Reading Room Hours. Some of our collections require either advance notice or a waiting period, and visitors coming from a distance should give a week’s notice of their arrival. Please note that our hours vary during semester breaks.
