The Clemson website calls the libraries “the portal to scholarly information and discovery.”
Most alumni immediately think of R.M. Cooper Library, but there are four others: Gunnin Architecture Library in Lee Hall, Special Collections and Archives located in the Strom Thurmond Institute, the Library Depot located at Clemson Research Park in Anderson and the Education Media Center in Tillman Hall.
Campus libraries today are different than the quiet stacks of days gone by. In addition to quiet study areas, there are collaborative study spaces, a coffee shop and convenience store, and the largest computer lab on campus — all within the walls of Cooper Library, which is open 140 out of 168 hours per week.
Here are a few more facts about the Clemson libraries.
