Visitors to the College – research databases

We love the Guests and Visitors to the College page!  It makes it so easy to provide answers about guest access.  We’ve just made a change to the page, and it’s significant enough that we thought I should make sure you’re aware.

The revised text is toward the end of the “Guest Borrower Responsibilities” section:  “Many electronic resources are available to guests in the library, but due to licensing agreements and contract restrictions, some are restricted to Middlebury College users.”  We want to be sure it’s clear that guests can use most of our electronic resources when they’re in the library.  (Previously the text said that use of electronic resources was at the discretion of the reference staff.  I’m sure someone in our group signed off on that text at some point — maybe even me!  But now we realize that it might have been misleading.)

Also, I added a link to the wiki page from this Drupal page: Visiting Our Libraries.

Thank you for all of your documentation!
