Research and Study
Meet with a Librarian
Schedule a research appointment with a librarian to discuss and narrow your topic; refine your searching techniques; and choose the highest-quality information to use.
The Simmons University Library’s video tutorials introduce library resources, show you how to construct smart research queries, and enhance your library experience.
Use Research Guides to discover additional information and sources and to improve your research. Research Guides are organized by subject, topic, course, and more. Use our collection of guides for help with assignments, or browse the complete list of guides.
The Simmons University Library’s Course Guides highlight course-specific content covering assignment support, field-related information, and more.
Use Community Guides to learn about meaningful social topics such as Activism 101, Digitizing Women’s Suffrage, or Relationship Skills. Simmons community members are welcome to suggest a topic for a Community Guide.
