Upcoming Changes to the Library Website Search

August 20, 2021

On Monday, August 23rd, the Library website search will get a new look! Keep your eyes peeled for improvements to search boxes throughout the Library website, including on our home page, on the Special Collections home page, and on our website’s navigation bar.

The Library home page search will now feature three tabs to search: Library Search, Special Collections, and Website Search. Libraries Worldwide and The Claremont Colleges Library will be replaced by one tab titled “Library Search.”

We’ve also added two new search locations on our Special Collections home page search: Archives at TCC and the Claremont Colleges Digital Library (CCDL). The Archives at TCC tab searches not only archival collections at the Library but also across six additional archives held at The Colleges, while the CCDL tab searches the Library’s and The Colleges’ born-digital and digitized historical and primary sources–images, texts, and audio/visual materials.

Lastly, the navigation bar search will be updated to search the Library website only.
