  • Can I study in the Libraries?

    For Libraries locations that are open, study spaces will be available for Clemson students, faculty, and staff use. To achieve the recommended social distancing between patrons, study areas will be modified using the university guidance of 36 sq. ft. between people.

  • How can I reserve a space to study?

    Cooper Library, Gunnin Architecture Library, and the Education Media Center will require a reservation for entry. An online booking service will be available to make these reservations before the start of on-site classes on September 21.

  • "Partner services" - CCIT, Starbucks, POD

    CCIT will offer virtual Help Desk appointments and in-person device support if no other option is available. Starbucks will be open but limited to patrons already in Cooper Library. The POD will be closed for the Spring 2021 semester.

  • Emeritus/alumni card access

    Emeritus - yes; Alumni - no

  • If I am a community member, can I still access the Libraries?

    At the present time, only those currently enrolled or employed at the University will be able to make appointments to use our study spaces and services. We look forward to welcoming back our community members when we are able to do so.
