Textbook Reserve Program: Home

overview of pilot program to provide access to textbooks; includes list of textbooks available this semester

Program Overview

The Cooper Library Textbook Reserve Program is a pilot project between the Clemson University Libraries and Undergraduate Student Government.  

  • Length of pilot - August 2019 through May 2020
  • Total of $10,000 in funding from Libraries and Student Government
  • Funding split into 2 semesters - Fall 2019 and Spring 2020
  • Items are rented from B&N Bookstore and will not be added as a permanent part of the collection.
  • Texts were selected based on those classes with 100 or more students enrolled and classes with high drop/fail rates.
  • Class texts were then analyzed and the highest priced texts were pulled from greatest cost to least to fill the $5000 budget. (Obviously, not all were selected. We stopped when we hit $5000.)

Why isn't MY textbook on the list?

Textbooks were selected based on cost and number of students enrolled (100+).  We started with the books that cost the most and worked our way down the list until we maxed our budget.  If you'd like to see more books added to the collection, please fill out our survey and voice your support of this program.
