Resource Sharing

The 5th and 6th floors of Cooper Library are being redesigned to provide more student study space!  Many of the journals from 5 and 6 will be moved to our Offsite Storage Facility or discarded due to low usage.
But don’t worry – Resource Sharing has you covered!  If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the library catalog, or the catalog indicates an item is “in transit to storage,” just place an ILLiad, PASCAL, or Scan and Deliver request and we’ll make sure you get what you need!

If Clemson Libraries doesn’t have the item you need, Resource Sharing can help you borrow it from another institution for at no cost for current students, faculty, and staff. Resource Sharing also provides scanning and digital delivery services of items held in print at the library for current faculty, staff, and students.
