Does your course require students to do research? Remind your students that McQuade Librarians are here to help! Use one of our Library Syllabus Statements below, in full or in part, in your syllabi, Blackboard sites, or assignments. Feel free to make any changes that you feel are necessary (such as adding names and contact information of specific librarians, specific resources, etc.).Please contact your Library Liaison with any questions.  

This is not a requirement for syllabi and no faculty member is required to add it.  If your course has a research component, we strongly encourage you to share this information with your students.
