Freedom of Access

Clemson University Libraries do not restrict access to materials and resources in any format (electronic, paper, media, etc.) due to content. Resources may be challenged by submitting the appropriate form in accordance with the “Challenged Materials Policy“. If a patron reports that other patrons are using materials as a means to harass or engage in unlawful activity, the patron will be referred to the security officer on duty for assistance. The security officer will assess the situation, talk with the patron(s) and determine whether to proceed with contacting the Clemson University Police Department. Access to materials in Special Collections and Records Management are governed by their own laws and policies and are not covered by this policy.
