At the ends of semesters, due to peak use, access is restricted to Simmons students and employees with ID cards.

The Simmons Library does not offer borrowing privileges to guests. Guests are welcome to use materials at the Library.


Guests may access Simmons e-resources in the Library. Remote access is not available to guests due to licensing restrictions.

Please see your local public library for remote access to e-resources. The Boston Public Library also provides remote access to e-resources for all Massachusetts residents.
