Where is the Library Depot?

The Clemson University Library Depot is located at Clemson Research Park in Anderson, SC and houses the University Records Center, the Library Off-Site Shelving, and the Libraries' Digital Initiatives unit. Off-site Shelving is where little-used library materials are stored to alleviate overcrowding in the on-campus libraries. 

The Library Depot is not open to the public. Clemson students, faculty, and staff may use the online request forms to request materials housed in off-site shelving. Community patrons may also request reels of microfilm/fiche using the online forms.

Request Forms

For Instructors

If you assign a project that requires students to use a section of microfilm, please request the microfilm reels be placed on Reserve so that students can access the film when needed. 

Example: Students need to browse a specific newspaper or magazine for a topic during the 1950s.
