Simmons update

Simmons Insights training sessions are being held online through the month of July.   To learn more, sign up for a training on the new platform here. https://attendee.gototraining.com/rt/1219351090153058050

From our E-Resources Librarian (modified by me): Simmons Insights will eventually replace Simmons OneView. Corporate clients are already using it, but the older data that universities purchase has not been ingested into it yet. The latest update available to our representative is that academic clients will migrate to the new platform before the end of the calendar year, preferably before the end of this Summer/Fall semesters begin.
