LIS West Welcome Day

A Warm Welcome to New Students!

SLIS West is holding New Student Welcome Day—an introduction to the LIS program and the South Hadley Campus for new Fall 2019 students—on Thursday, January 23, 2020, at the Willits-Hallowell Conference Center on the Mount Holyoke Campus. The agenda for the event will be posted in the coming weeks.

Directions to the Willits-Hallowell Conference Center can be found at the Mount Holyoke website. You will receive two ID cards, one for Mount Holyoke College and one for Simmons.

During the morning portion of the program, we will introduce you to faculty and staff, to the SLIS West student group, LISSA West, and to Mount Holyoke College Library and Information Technology Services (LITS). We will discuss the programs of study, policies and procedures, and SLIS West facilities, technology, and library services.

An optional campus tour will be offered at the conclusion of the program.

How to Obtain your Simmons and MHC ID Cards

Prior to the Introduction to LIS Boston event, we encourage you to submit a photo online for your ID card. At that site, sign in with your Simmons username and password and you will see directions for uploading your picture. If you submit a photo by December 10th, your ID card will be available at the check in table at the event. If you are not able to submit a photo ahead of time, you will receive a non-photo Simmons ID card.

Simmons LIS West students are required to obtain a photo Mount Holyoke ID card. After you check in at the Introduction to LIS West event, you will be taken to the Mount Holyoke Auxiliary Services to have your photo taken and to obtain your MHC ID. If you are unable to attend the event, you will need to visit the Mount Holyoke College Auxiliary Services office as MHC ID cards must be obtained in person.
