Wiki updates

Several edits have been made to both the Borrowing and Circulation staff wiki pages. The links to the right have been updated to point to the most useful page for each. Please let me know if you can’t find something that used to be readily available. Also, please feel free to update any out-of-date information. I did not update content, only the organization and location of the info.

Faculty/Staff laptops MUST log in at the desk!

Please remind faculty and staff when they check out a laptop – to ensure that the computer is working properly and to avoid potential future dilemas – that they should log in with their Middlebury username and password on campus using an ethernet cord. At Davis, they can use the purple ethernet cord dangling in front of the supervisor circ computer. They must log in wired once in order for the wireless to work on campus.

JAMA password

(That’s short for “Journal of the American Medical Association” and it sort-of rhymes with what one wears at bedtime.)

This is one of the few titles that requires a special password for online access.  The MIDCAT record tells you what to do to get it:  call the Reference Desk at x5496.

Remember that in most cases, when someone asks for a password for an online journal, you should tell them they probably will need nothing more than their Middlebury username and password.  The trick is that they need to use the link for the journal that’s in our Journals A-Z list (go/journals), not just any link they find on Google.
