Our Director recently received an email from the Director of the Simmons College Library indicating that Simmons, one of our Fenway Library Consortium sister schools, was changing its access hours. Here is an excerpt from that email:
"Simmons College is changing hours for building access on our Academic Campus effective August 29, 2011. This new policy impacts FLC members’ access to Beatley Library. We will be updating our website with the new hours but I wanted to give you all a heads up.
Our current policy: Simmons ID required after 8:30 pm
New policy: Simmons ID required after 7 pm weekdays, after 5 pm on Saturday and all day Sunday."
Again, this policy is due to be implemented as of August 29th. If you wish to check Simmons hours, this is their relevant webpage: http://www.simmons.edu/library/about/hours/
So, Suffolk users who wish to check out books from Simmons, please be warned of this policy change, which we regret. Please plan your research trips to Simmons accordingly. And we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this change may cause you.
