Pivotal Pedagogy - Online and Off-Campus? Simmons University Library Is Here for You - Shared screen with speaker view
What about media available on Amazon? There are several films that could provide great asynchronous material. I don’t have a subscription and I know many students don’t either. Will Simmons purchase some videos?
I have the same question as Edie. How easy is it to get Simmons to purchase films that we do not have access to? Some of the films I show are on Amazon, Netflix, and PBS.
Yes Edie, we will purchase streaming media for your courses.

When purchasing media we just have to be sure it is available for a library license which is different from home versions
Who do I contact to request streaming media?
Great to hear that the library is able to purchase streaming media! How do faculty go about requesting purchases?
You can use the 'request a purchase form' on the library website. https://www.simmons.edu/library/resources/purchase
I was told the library was making videos on how to do general research specifically for students in the Boston Course. Can yo confirm this? How is this different from having a librarian come to class?
Yes! I will be doing that. I'm also happy/excited to come to classes. Those will be delving into a bit more specific information topics.
Yes we do have First Year videos. Having a librarian come to class allows for more tailored instruction.
And perhaps workshops/Q&As related directly to research in your classes
*Linda and I will be doing those videos for FY students
Is it still possible to get interlibrary loans (digital articles)?
Yes. ILL will continue. We are seeing libraries who are not able to fill 'physical' book/material requests at this time but digital/electronic articles are being supplied.
Will the library make books available to students?
Students can request physical items from the collection and we will mail them to their home addresses.
Im thinking specifically about the art photography books
Another option to mailing out items is for us to locate those titles at a library close to their homes.
So should faculty recommend students contact the library through the website?
It is best to use the 'request' feature in the catalog to request an item. They can also use firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to ask questions about item availability or access at another library.
If the library purchases a particular media, how do the students link to that media? will the Library send the faculty member a link for students to access online?
Yes - you will receive confirmation of the purchase and a link which you can embed in your course (Moodle or other). The media are also cataloged and listed in the library catalog.
Stacy can you share a link to that resource. That sounds so great!
