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.
Beginning Monday, September 14th, patrons can pick up requested items and holds at the front door of Cooper Library during open service hours. Simply call our Item PickUp number at 864-656-1972 and give your name and CUID number. A staff member will bring your items to the main entrance doors of Cooper Library. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Library instruction for courses will be provided only online for the fall semester 2020 and will be offered either synchronously or asynchronously. Library classroom spaces will be prepared for library instructors to record sessions or to provide train-the-trainer sessions for small groups of individuals who may need more detailed instruction. This kind of instruction will only be provided if all attendees are wearing the proper protective mask and if all follow social distancing guidelines. Online instruction will be offered both synchronously (live) and asynchronously (self-paced). If the teaching faculty and the librarian both agree that F2F is the best option and they take appropriate steps to ensure safety, that F2F instruction can be arranged.
