Information & Research Services

The Information & Research Services (I & RS) unit strives to provide high quality services at Cooper Library, Gunnin Architecture Library, and the Education Media Center in order to support the University’s research, teaching, and innovation goals. I & RS utilizes a team approach and encourages collaboration throughout the unit so that we are better able to serve our customers.

I & RS Teams

Information Services provides informational, directional, and basic reference assistance at service desks and assist users with circulation of materials, equipment, reserves, ILL and PASCAL requests.

Research Services (Engineering & Sciences, Humanities, and Social Sciences) are responsible for reference, collection development, and instruction in the broader subject areas of engineering & sciences, humanities, or social sciences. Each librarian is responsible for individual liaison areas which correspond to departments at Clemson University.

Instruction Team is responsible for coordinating library instruction programs to teach users how to locate, use, and think critically about information resources. The team also supports teaching and assessment for library instructors in order to assist them in documenting the relationship between library instruction and student success.

Resource Sharing Team members provide interlibrary loan services, PASCAL Delivers, and Scan & Deliver for faculty, staff, and students. Team members process requests from our users to borrow books, articles, and materials from other libraries and work to fulfill requests from other libraries to borrow materials from Clemson.
