Visit the Libraries

Clemson Libraries serves the students, faculty, and staff of Clemson University, as well as members of the community. This includes visitors from community groups and K-12 schools and programs.

R.M. Cooper Library

For K-12 visitors, the Cooper Library can provide instruction for students in the research process, as well as learning activities that orient students to an academic library (like a tour). These requests require a minimum of two weeks notice.

For all visitors, programs and tours are available from 9AM to 3PM Monday-Friday depending upon staff availability. During the school year when classes are in session, and the Libraries are in regular use by students and faculty, we may not be able to accommodate all requests. Programs and tours are not available the week before exams or during exam week.

To view the academic calendar, visit the Academic Calendars page.

Building Access

Access to the Libraries is restricted to Clemson University students, faculty and staff with a valid CUID card or mobile device. Other visitors may apply for a Community Member access card.
