The library building is closed until further notice, but we can provide resources and services remotely. Check here for updates, because services will change as circumstances dictate. Details are below.
Librarians are available to help with your research questions by email. Just contact us anytime at email@example.com!
Seniors will not be printing and submitting theses in person this year. Instead, we'll be using a Google form for submission of the final version. The form will accept up to 10 files for the thesis and up to 10 files for companion pieces (photos, audio, video, etc.). If you have any problems or questions, contact Brian Mikesell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All electronic resources are always available from any location. These resources include more than 200,000 ebooks, 50,000 full text electronic journals and magazines, streaming music and video, and more. Use the links to these resources from the library's webpage, because the necessary authentication procedure is initiated by clicking those links. You'll be asked to log in using your Simon's Rock username and password.
If you're on campus and need books from the collection for coursework, look them up in the library’s catalog and then submit a request. We’ll retrieve them and let you know when they’re ready for you to pick up on the bench outside Classroom 1 (near the bell tower). You can return items to the drop box located outside the library in the bell tower courtyard.
Handling physical items: when retrieving items from the stacks for you, we will use nitrile gloves or other protective measures in order to minimize contact. When items are returned, we will quarantine them for a minimum of 5 days before handling them or circulating them again.
