Textbook Lending Program: Home


Program Overview


  • Textbooks are available for checkout at the Library Services Desk in Cooper Library. Loans are for 4 hours at a time. You may take the textbook out of the Library, or use textbooks for group study but it MUST be returned within 4 hours.
  • Students should also check their Course Resource Lists in Canvas to see if additional course readings are available through our library catalog.
  • Due to the nature of our textbook program, we are unable to provide individual electronic access to these titles.

CUSG & The Libraries

The Cooper Library Textbook Lending Program is a partnership between the Clemson University Libraries and Clemson Undergraduate Student Government.  

  • The program began in Fall 2019 and seeks to ease the burden of purchasing high-cost textbooks for Undergraduate students.
  • A total of $10,000 in funding from Libraries and Student Government is provided for the program each year. The Libraries purchase books each semester. Only required texts will be purchased.
  • Texts are selected for courses with high enrollment, high drop/fail rates, and large numbers of Pell Grant students. 
  • Some course textbooks may be available in the Libraries circulation collection or as an ebook. Search the Libraries website in the "Search for articles, books, and more" box for the textbook title to see if there is a copy.

Course Reserves

Course Reserves are physical items (books, media, manipulatives) or electronic content (PDFs, streaming video) by which instructors supplement their courses. Physical items are put on reserve at one of three library branches – Cooper Library, Education Media Center (EMC 212 Old Main), or Gunnin Architecture Library – and electronic content can be found in the Course Resource List module of your Canvas course.

Visit our Course Reserves page for more details.
