Clemson Online: Books & eBooks

Find Books and eBooks

Search the library catalog:



  1. Choose a search type from the drop-down menu:

    Keyword - start here when you're researching a topic.

    Title - search for the title (or the beginning of the title) of the book or journal you need.

    Author - search by "lastname, firstname" to find books by an author. E.g.: Austen, Jane.

  2. Enter your word(s) and Search.

    NOTE: To limit your search to eBooks, choose "Electronic Resources" instead of "View Entire Collection" from the drop-down menu on the right.

Need a Book that Clemson Doesn't Have?

  1. Try requesting the book through PASCAL Delivers [you can choose a Pickup Institution at various universities across South Carolina, including Greenville] or, if you can't find it there, make an Interlibrary Loan request. Interlibrary loan items can be mailed to faculty/staff and to students enrolled in off-campus education programs by choosing the "Mail To Address" option within your Interlibrary Loan account.

  2. If you are a Clemson graduate student or faculty member, you can check out books at the University of Georgia at Athens. Graduate students need a letter of permission and faculty need a borrowing card. These can be requested from Teri Alexander (Circulation & Facilities Manager) by email, phone: 864-656-5172, or fax: 864-656-4622.

Request Book Delivery

You can request books for delivery using the Clemson Libraries catalog. After you log in, you have two options:

  1. If you can conveniently access a Clemson Library Branch:
    • Click "Request"' and choose the Clemson Libraries branch most convenient to you.
    • You'll receive an email when your book is ready for pickup!
  2. If you cannot conveniently access a Clemson Library Branch, select Off-Campus Deliveries and enter your full mailing address in the "Comments or special notes" field.

See our "Request Delivery of Materials" page for more details!
