 Library/LRC Syllabus Statements

 Content Editor

To help faculty promote equity for our diverse student population and introduce them to library resources (high quality information sources offered free to all COS students, faculty, and staff), we have developed sample statements that can be included in syllabi. 
​We also encourage faculty to contact their liaison​ to learn more about the resources available to support student success relevant to their course.

Library Services Sample 1:

This class requires students to find information sources for a speech, research paper, or project. Appropriate sources could include scholarly and peer-reviewed journal articles, books or magazines and newspapers. Librarians are available to help students select and locate appropriate sources. You can Ask a Librarian in person, by email, chat, phone, or Zoom for assistance.

Library Services Sample 2:

​GET HELP @ YOUR LIBRARY! You can access your library account, the online catalog, and academic databases from your MyGiant account. For research assistance, Ask a Librarian in person, ​by email, chat, phone, or Zoom.

Access to Technology Devices Sample​:​

This class is offered online and requires access to reliable internet and a computer.  ​The Library/LRC has a program that is free to students in need of reliable internet and/or a laptop. To request a hotspot, laptop, or request the renewal of devices already checked-out,  fill out the Laptop and Hotspot request form on the Hotspot & Laptop Checkout website. If you have questions about this program call 730-3825 or email

Note: These are only recommendations and no faculty member is required to use them.
However, it is a resource we hope you will share with your students.​
