Modified Operations

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 the Fall 2020 semester, those entering Cooper Library will be required to swipe in with their University ID to ensure that we remain within occupancy requirement standards. 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.

Picking Up Items

Clemson Libraries is now offering Pickup Assistance to all Clemson students, faculty, and staff. Request items from our FindIt@Clemson Tool and pick them up at Cooper Library any time the building is open.

You will receive an email notification verifying a request is ready for pickup, at which time you can come to Cooper Library and call the PickUp Assistance line 864-656-1792, and your items will be brought to you at the front door.
