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.
Vivienne Piroli

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?
Sarah Martin
20:06
Great to hear that the library is able to purchase streaming media! How do faculty go about requesting purchases?
Vivienne Piroli
21:02
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?
Jess Wallis
25:15
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.
Vivienne Piroli
25:35
Yes we do have First Year videos. Having a librarian come to class allows for more tailored instruction.
Jess Wallis
25:44
And perhaps workshops/Q&As related directly to research in your classes
Jess Wallis
25:51
*Linda and I will be doing those videos for FY students

Is it still possible to get interlibrary loans (digital articles)?
Vivienne Piroli
32:21
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.
Edie Bresler
42:45
Will the library make books available to students?
Vivienne Piroli
43:10
Students can request physical items from the collection and we will mail them to their home addresses.
Edie Bresler
43:15
Im thinking specifically about the art photography books
Vivienne Piroli
44:01
Another option to mailing out items is for us to locate those titles at a library close to their homes.
Edie Bresler
44:51
So should faculty recommend students contact the library through the website?
Vivienne Piroli
47:39
It is best to use the 'request' feature in the catalog to request an item. They can also use reference@simmons.edu or library@simmons.edu to ask questions about item availability or access at another library.
Michael Berger
48:08
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?
Vivienne Piroli
49:14
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.
