The Paul Meek Library is pleased to announce the online availability of the Syllabi Clearinghouse Collection, a searchable database of UTM course syllabi documents.

To access the database please go to https://www.utm.edu/departments/library/syllabi/facstaffview.php.

Search options include: 1) Search by Course 2) Search by Instructor and 3) Search by Keyword

1. Search by Course
With the pull down arrows, select department name (called subject by the Registrar); course number; section number; semester; and year. Click on the View/Download PDF button and the syllabus will download.
2. Search by Instructor
Use the pull down arrow to select the instructor’s surname, then select the forename. Finally, select the Course. Click on the View/Download PDF button and the syllabus will download.
3. Search by Keyword
Keyword searching is done by the Google™ Custom Search which applies search engine capabilities to the syllabi database.
The database currently houses 500-600 syllabi submitted voluntarily by UTM departments.

Syllabi files may be sent by email to Michael Hill. Please include "Syllabi" in the subject heading along with the attached syllabus file. The Library will accept any syllabus format --- search the database or check with your departmental secretary/administrative assistant to see if the syllabus has already been sent to the Library. Syllabi will be perpetually archived in the database.

Creation of the database has been a cooperative venture among the Academic Council, the Paul Meek Library, and the Instructional Technology Center.

If you’d like a live demonstration of the database, contact Library Director Chuck Julian.
