SYLLABUS STATEMENTS

All SRSU Syllabi Guidelines are available on SRINFO here.

One easy thing instructors can do is incorporate information about the SRSU Library and Archives into their syllabi.

Even if a course does not require an explicit research component, the Library and Archives offer many opportunities for students to expand their learning.

Simply by sharing information with your students about the Library and Archives, you’ll encourage them to consider these opportunities.

Feel free to craft your own statement, or share ours:

The Bryan Wildenthal Memorial Library and Archives of the Big Bend in Alpine offers FREE resources and services to the entire SRSU community. Access and borrow books, articles, and more by visiting the library’s website, library.sulross.eduOff-campus access requires logging in with your LoboID and password. Librarians are a tremendous resource for your coursework and can be reached in person, by email (srsulibrary@sulross.edu), or phone (432-837-8123).

Additional information for students at Rio Grande College:

The Southwest Texas Junior College (SWTJC) Libraries at Uvalde, Del Rio, and Eagle Pass offer additional access to library spaces and resources. Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Uvalde students may additionally use online resources available through SWTJC website, library.swtjc.edu. The SWTJC Libraries serve as pick-up locations for InterLibrary Loan (ILL) from the Alpine campus.

Materials may be placed on faculty reserve at the request of instructors as supplemental course information. By placing an item on reserve, an instructor limits the loan period, ensuring that all students enrolled in a particular course have access to the reserved material. Materials have reserve status only during the semester in which the designated course is being taught.

The library does not otherwise limit access to reserve materials; any current student, staff, or faculty may check out them out.

Materials placed on reserve may be part of the library’s holdings or may be items personally owned by the instructor, at their discretion.

Note: Course Reserves differ from the Textbook Collection and the Recommend a Purchase service. If you are unsure of the best way to make material available to your students, contact the library.

Placing Materials on Reserve

Faculty members may place materials on reserve by bringing a completed reserve form (PDF, 786 KB) along with the materials to be placed on reserve. Please read the Faculty Course Reserves Policies and Procedures (PDF, 37.1 KB) before submitting materials.

The library is not responsible for patron damage to personal items placed on reserve.
