We offer the following as language that can be added to your syllabus.  Please feel free to copy and use as you see fit.


Library Access

The Clark University Libraries subscribe to many academic resources and offer research assistance for anyone in the Clark community; including students at a distance. The library team offers short tutorials on how to use library resources and the basics of academic research in a self-paced course called "Library Research Tutorials". The Goddard Library Homepage contains links to databases, course research guides, and descriptions of services. For assistance with conducting research or help with a database, use the Goddard Library Online Help to connect with the library team by phone, email, text or chat. 


Clark faculty, staff, and students with the Clarku domain accounts may access all Clark databases remotely with their Clark University credentials. These are the same way you sign into Moodle and your Clark email. Here you can access over 100 databases and multiple resources to complete your research needs. The library hours are 8 am to midnight Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 8 pm on Friday, 10 am to 8 pm on Saturday, and 12pm (noon) to 12 am (midnight) on Sunday (all times U.S. Eastern Time). During the summer and in extenuating circumstances these hours are subject to change. Online access is available 24 hours per day. For more information, see our Hours Web Page.


When you are off-campus and accessing library resources (such as journal articles or online books in the holdings) you may be prompted for your Clark credentials (username/password).
