Library Services Guide: For Faculty

For Faculty

Due to the One Simmons Project, the Library and Archives have relocated to a small, temporary space in C-520 and C-521. For more information on the services and resources across the University, visit the Navigating Simmons Guide.

Course Reserves

Physical Course Reserves for on-the-ground courses are located at the Library Service Desk in C-520 and can be checked out during hours of operation. Links to electronic articles can be made available to students through your learning management system or the course syllabus. For maximum accessibility, the library purchases e-books and streaming media whenever possible.
