Clemson University Libraries

Offsite Shelving

The Clemson University Libraries Offsite Shelving Facility is an off-campus site where lesser-used library materials are stored to alleviate overcrowding in the on-campus libraries. The Offsite Shelving Facility is not open to the public.

Clemson students, faculty, and staff may use the online request forms to request materials from Offsite Shelving. Retrieval requests will be processed within 24 hours excluding weekends and University holidays.

All other patrons who are on campus may request items at the Cooper Library Reference Desk. Off-campus patrons who are not affiliated with Clemson University should use their library's interlibrary loan service to make requests.
