Fall 2020 Library Services: Reserves

To share with the Simmons community the steps the library is taking to ensure access.
Fall 2020 LibraryServicesA - Z

For Faculty

The library understands that your teaching has been severely altered by the Coronavirus protocols. As we expect to receive a large number of requests for additional, online materials, we encourage you to use videos, eBooks and other online resources that we already own, or are available for free in your teaching. If you are able, reach out to your liaison librarian to identify teaching materials that may meet your needs.

Scan on Demand

Dependent on library staffing and demand, we will attempt to scan and digitize course reserve readings. Use this form for requests.

Provide the following information:

  • Course name and number
  • Title of book, year, and edition if applicable
  • Pages/sections needed
    • If you need an entire, or substantial portion of a print book, we will first attempt to provide you with an eBook version. In case one is not available, library staff will contact you and make alternate arrangements.
  • Date when you need this

Streaming Videos for Reserves

If you have a DVD on Reserve, fill out the Add An Item to Course Reserves Form and we will check if it is available to stream.

You can also check out our guide on Finding Videos that are in the Library Collection or free online.

For Students

We support your learning preferences and needs during this time. You can ask your faculty to submit a course reserve digitization request. See Scan on Demand.
