Matthew Kimble awarded grant from NIMH

Matthew Kimble (Psychology) has been awarded a research grant from the National Institute of Mental Health through NIH’s R15 AREA program. The grant provides three years of funding to support a project titled Neurophysiological and Behavioral Studies of Expectancy Bias in Trauma Survivors, which will use electroencephalography and eye tracking technology to better understand how psychological trauma affects how individuals look at the world. The project will involve multiple students through the life of the grant as independent study students, thesis students, and summer and regular semester research assistants. This grant represents Matt Kimble’s third NIMH funded project in this research area.

From the College Archives: Middlebury Commencement Through History

We are thrilled to introduce a new series, From the College Archives, curated by Josh Kruskal, ’15. In the weeks of his last semester, Josh, a prized Special Collections staff member, scoured 200 years of Middlebury Kaleidoscopes in search of historic and day-to-day moments. In Josh’s inaugural post: Commencement. In his photo essays to come, look for themes such as Students and Their Dogs, Downtown Middlebury, Halloween Costumes, and many more.  Congratulations Josh, and enjoy…

Retirement of Bombay Print Server

Middlebury College is retiring the Bombay print server in July 2015 as it is incompatible with our current 64-bit operating systems. Bombay has been replaced by a new print server named Walnut that has all of the same print queues on it. ITS is reviewing Bombay usage and will be contacting individuals who need to transition to the new print server.

If you’re currently using the Bombay Print Server you must perform the following steps before July 1, 2015 so you do not experience an interruption in printing services:

Steps for Windows 7 computers to move from Bombay to Walnut:

  1. look for printers “on Bombay” print server name listed below queue name. Go to Start>Devices and Printers and look for entries that have “on Bombay” in the name, e.g. “LIB125F on Bombay”
  2. record printer queue names
  3. remove old print queues
  4. add printers from Walnut

Instructions for these steps can be found in our printing documentation: http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Connect_To_Network_Printers_-_Windows

Steps for Macintosh OS X computers to move from Bombay to Walnut:

  1. record printer queue names(the names are posted on the printers)
  2. remove old print queues
  3. add printer from Walnut via Casper’s Self Service(or manually)

Instructions for these steps can be found in our printing documentation: http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Connect_To_Network_Printers_-_Mac_OS_X

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact the Helpdesk at 802. 443.2200 or via email to helpdesk@middlebury.edu.
