Search Clemson Libraries Collections

Find books, eBooks, and media in the catalog:

  • To really focus results, use Advanced Search to combine your keyword search with the subject search "construction industry". Example:

  • combine keywords using AND or OR for more precise results
  • use "quotation marks" to search for phrases
  • title and journal title searches (in dropdown options on the left) are phrase searches by default
  • to search by author, use last name, first name, like this: fewings, peter
  • searches are not case sensitive
  • Select "Gunnin Library" (righthand dropdown menu) to limit results to Gunnin holdings.


Once you've done a search using OneSearch, use the facets in the column to the left of your results to focus your search on specific types of content (as eBooks, conference proceedings, peer-reviewed articles, trade articles, etc.), or limit your results to a specific date range or to full text online.

Get books from beyond Clemson

If Clemson doesn't own the book, journal, or other material you need, our Resource Sharing office can request it from another research library. It's free! but you must create a personal account in order to use it, and plan ahead: the service can be fast or slow, depending on the type of material and which library responds.
