Work with a Librarian
Librarians are here to support your learning, teaching, research, and to make finding information a straightforward and friendly process for everyone.
Do you have an immediate question?
The Reference Desk is available through chat, email, phone, or in person to help answer your questions whenever and however it's most convenient for you.
We work with all students, both in-person or online as your program and schedule allows. We also work to best arrange research appointments to accomodate any disability needs of our students.
Please complete the Simmons Library Request for Access form in order to set up an appointment to access the library during closed building hours or at the end of a semester.
Meet with a librarian in a research appointment to:
- Discuss and narrow your topic
- Refine your searching techniques
- Choose the highest-quality information to use
If a librarian came to your class and you would like a more personalized approach to your work, or if you're already familiar with searching but you haven't found enough sources on a specific topic, an individual appointment is a great way to get the help you need.
