Search the Clemson Libraries Catalog

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

The @Clemson Libraries option brings up local, physical items and licensed e-resources. PASCAL Delivers searches our South Carolina partner libraries.

  • 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.
  • Within an item record, scroll down to "Browse" to scan the shelves for related items, virtually.

Request items from any Libraries location for pickup at the Cooper Library or Gunnin Architecture Library. The Request link is in the item record. ALWAYS sign in to the catalog, to see all delivery options.

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.

Search eBook Collections

Clemson Libraries also provide eBook collections with focused subject strengths. Click on the logos below to browse or search individual collections:

SpringerLink carries eBooks and eJournals in architecture & design, environmental science, civil engineering, and social sciences. Because it is multi-disciplinary and international, it's best to use a focused search strategy.

Suggested searches:

"construction industry" AND [any geographic limit: e.g., "United States"]

construction AND contractors

construction AND "project management"


Click on the icons below to automatically search each collection for eBooks, conference proceedings, publications by professional associations, and online reference works related to the construction industry or construction management. Feel free to revise the search results to focus on a specific topic, save the search, or start a new search. The Knovel Science and Technology and CRCnetBASE digital libraries are strong on engineering and materials resources. 

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.
