What is the TOR, and where do I go if I need help?
The Technology Orientation Requirement, (TOR), is a self-paced series of readings, short quizzes and hands-on activities that introduces new SLIS students to the technology and resources at Simmons SLIS. It ensures that new students are prepared to use the technology required for their LIS courses. The TOR consists of three (3) parts. For more information on the TOR and to learn when your TOR is due, please go to: http://gslis.simmons.edu/tor/ If a student is having difficulties completing the TOR, he/she can visit the Tech-Lab located on the 2nd floor of the Palace Road Building, Room P-213, or call the Tech Lab at 617-521-2802 and ask for assistance.
My student folder - what is it and where can I find it?
Each student has a folder with his/her name on it and can be found in the file cabinets in the Student Lounge, P-212-G. Student folders are arranged alphabetically by last name. Student folders are used by professors to return to you your coursework materials, i.e., papers, projects, notebooks, etc. Professors will usually alert students in advance that they are leaving items in the student folders; however, it is still a good idea to check your folder every week or so!
