Choose Your Pick-Up Location

While we love having you in the library, did you know that you can get books or materials delivered to a Clemson University Libraries location that’s more convenient to you? For instance, if you have an office or most of your classes in Tillman Hall but the book you want is in Cooper, request the book and choose Tillman Media Center as the pick-up location.

If you are distance student, we do some extra special stuff for you. *wink, wink* *mailing address* *wink*

This video explains more about it.

PAWS and Consider Your Sources

There’s a lot of information out there! How can you trust that something you just read online or in print is legit? Before using and citing sources in your assignments or papers, you need to evaluate the information by asking the following:

  • Can you trust the information?
  • Is it biased?
  • Is it opinion or fact?
  • Is it current, outdated or historical?
  • Who wrote it and how do they know what they say they know?
  • Where did you find the information?

As a Clemson Tiger, use your PAWS to help answer these questions. This brief video tutorial developed by Clemson University Libraries will help you critically evaluate your information for:

  • Point of view and purpose
  • Age
  • Writer
  • Source

PAWS – Use your PAWS to think critically about information sources!

Before You Go…

BooksExams are over. Grading exams is almost over. What will you do with all this leisure time?

Here’s a few ideas from our collections!

You could browse our DVD and video collection. We got whole sets of television series that you could binge watch. We’ve got foreign films if you want to

We wouldn’t be a library if we didn’t recommend some books! Peruse your way through our Popular Reading collection and take home a few bestsellers. A good book and something warm to drink sounds like the perfect break!

Got a long drive? You can download one of our audiobooks or we have books on CD if you are old school. Check one (or more) out!

Don’t worry about the due dates. If your materials are due while you aren’t in town, you can renew them online using your library account.

Let the library help you have the best break ever!
