Library Resources to Support Online Learning During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Library Resources and Services for Online Learning

The Clemson Libraries are here to support students and faculty during the move to online learning in response to the coronavirus outbreak. There are many ways we can provide you with expert help and services while you are working online, even though our facilities are closed.  Some services may take longer than usual due to reduced staffing and limited access to library materials both at Clemson and at other academic libraries. 

Instructional Opportunities

If you're a professor moving your course online, consider partnering with Clemson Libraries:

Contact your Subject Librarian to talk about the options!

Online Materials and Tools

The Clemson Libraries have plenty of digital materials available for you if you can’t make it to campus to pick up physical items.

  • Research & Course Guides - Guides to help you find the best databases to search and provide hints and tips for finding just the right thing for your research needs.
  • Libraries OneSearch - Search the Library Catalog and select databases for articles. Use the filters on the left side of the screen to focus on ebooks, streaming audio or video, and other online resources.
  • Articles & Research Databases - Hundreds of databases provide access to journal articles, magazines, newspapers, video, and more. Most require log in using your Clemson ID and password.
  • Access to e-textbooks - See E-textbooks box on the Getting Online Articles and Books tab.
  • Access to streaming media - Some vendors like Bullfrog will provide access to streaming media for films that we have DVD access to for the next 30 days. Kanopy is offering The Great Courses series and other select films for free over the next month.
  • Clemson Digital Collections - Primary sources in Clemson’s digital collections or contact an archivist from Special Collections and Archives to assist in incorporating the use of primary resources in your instruction.
  • TigerPrints - Clemson theses and dissertations and as well as other scholarly works created by Clemson faculty, staff, and students.
