What to Expect
Appointments no longer required. Appointments are no longer necessary for library entry, studying, or printing. However, classrooms and group study rooms are still available by appointment only.
Masks are required in library facilities. For the safety of our employees, your fellow students, and yourself, we would appreciate it if you would wear your mask.
Library access restricted to Clemson students, faculty and staff. During the Fall 2021, we will be limiting access to library materials and buildings to only Clemson students, faculty, and staff. You will need to bring your ID with you to access the building.

Books & Technology Equipment
Physical reserves are available. Ebook and streaming purchases are possible to support online course delivery and research. Visit our Course Reserves page or contact your Subject Librarian for more information.
Who Can Access the Libraries and Library Materials
Library materials and buildings will only be accessible to Clemson students, faculty and staff.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 Pandemic has required us to examine our services and how we can redirect resources and personnel to best accommodate instruction support on campus and online. As a result, for Fall 2021, those entering libraries on campus will be required to swipe in with their University ID . This means that community members will not have access to the library or to materials. Instead, we’d like to redirect community access users to your local public branch libraries for any immediate needs. We look forward to being able to serve you again soon.
Special Collections and Archives
Special Collectives and Archives available by appointment only. Digitization of some materials is available by request. If you have any questions, you can reach the via email at email@example.com or call 864-656-5176.
