Students in the GSLIS at Mount Holyoke College Program are entitled to borrowing privileges and other services at both Simmons College Libraries and Mount Holyoke College Libraries. See the GSLIS West Library News page for the complete list of services. The Simmons College Library also supports GSLIS West Course Reserves and students' Document Delivery/Inter-Library Loan needs.

The Simmons College Libraries serve the academic, research, information, study, and some recreational needs of Simmons students, faculty, and staff. Additional information and access to the library catalog can be obtained at the website, It is wise to check the current hours before traveling to Boston to use the Libraries.

The Mount Holyoke College Libraries are part of the MHC Library, Information, and Technology Services organization (LITS), which supports the varied information and electronic technology needs of students, faculty, and staff. Housed in the Williston-Miles-Smith-Dwight complex, LITS offers a variety of services across the College campus. See the LITS website for a full description of LITS services.
