Clemson University Libraries
The Becoming a R1 Library Task Force was charged with exploring what it would mean for Clemson Libraries to become a “Research 1 Library.” Specifically, our purpose was to conduct research and collect data with the following aims in mind:
1. To evaluate Clemson’s current operations
2. To discern the differences between operations of spaces, services, collections, and resources at Clemson Libraries and 12 specific aspirational peer R1 Libraries
3. To offer recommendations to help Clemson Libraries bridge the gap
This report contains two sections: Section I outlines benchmarking against aspirational peer libraries and Section II contains recommendations based on our findings.
