Architecture: Books & Media

Resources in support of first-degree and graduate studio programs in architecture

Find Dissertations/Theses/Terminal Projects

In addition to the online databases below, you can search the Libraries catalog by author or title to find out whether and via what platform (print, media, web) a specific dissertation, thesis, or terminal project is available. Use Resource Sharing to request items not in CU Libraries collections.

Search the Clemson Libraries Catalog

Use the Libraries catalog's Advanced Search for the most focused results -- books, journals, articles, media and more.

Start with the @Clemson Libraries option for physical items and licensed e-resources. Expand your search to PASCAL Delivers to include in your results what our South Carolina partner libraries have to offer.

  • Combine Advanced Search with appropriate search limits : material type, online availability, exact title, etc.
  • In any item record, click on a subject heading to browse related materials. Subject heading searches are super-efficient.
  • Within an item record, scroll down to "Browse" to 'scan the shelves' for related items, virtually. Call numbers (items classed together by subject matter) are meaningful.
  • For e-books related to your search terms, select "Available online" under the Availability heading, to the right of your results.

Request items from any Libraries location for pickup at the Cooper Library, the Gunnin Architecture Library, or the Clemson Design Center Library in Charleston. The Request link is in the item record. ALWAYS sign in to the catalog, to see all delivery options. The sign in option is at the upper right of the Advanced Search page.

Off-Campus Delivery Service - if you live over 30 miles from the Clemson campus, items can be mailed to you.

Scan and Deliver - Request articles and book chapters as PDFs, delivered to your email address.

If Clemson doesn't own it...

If Clemson doesn't own the book, journal, or other material you need, use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request it from other research libraries. It's free!

WorldCat - Combined catalog of participating academic & museum libraries in 112+ countries, containing 47 million+ records.

  • Clemson holdings will be indicated & linked.
  • Request other materials through Interlibrary Loan.

All South Carolina academic libraries (PASCAL) now have a shared catalog. This means you can now request any item made available by another PASCAL library, right from your Clemson Libraries' search results.  Just select the list under "Get It from Other Institutions" to complete your request.

Request Books!

Interlibrary Loan: It's free! But can take time--plan ahead!

'Hold' or recall a book: Click on the Hold/Recall button at the top left of an individual record in the catalog to recall a checked out item, or place it on hold (to be next in line to check it out). You'll receive an email when the item becomes available.
