Modified Operations

In response to the South Carolina Governor’s executive orders and our current knowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic, Clemson Libraries will be closed to the public until at least September 14, 2020. This includes Cooper Library, the Educational Media Center, Gunnin Architecture Library, Special Collections and Archives, offsite storage collections at the Library Depot, and our Clemson Design Center Library in Charleston.
