Syllabus Statement on Accessing Library Resources

Here's a sample syllabus statement on accessing library resources for your distance students. It also satisfies item F of the WCU Distance Education Course Proposal Required Checklist if you are preparing a DE class for CAPC.

The WCU Libraries’ electronic resources and research assistance services are readily accessible to you at a distance from the library’s website: http://library.wcupa.edu. For information on getting physical materials sent to you, and other services and support for distance education students see http://library.wcupa.edu/distance.

Library Instruction for Distance Education Classes

Would your students benefit from library instruction to help with their research assignments? We can help. 

  • If your class meets in person at any of our branch campuses, we can come to your classroom.
  • If your class meets asynchronously or is a hybrid class, we can put together a tutorial and/or instructional guide (example) for your class. 

 Please contact Danielle Skaggs, dskaggs@wcupa.edu or 610-436-2401, to get started.
