We are pleased to announce the recent addition of Joe Langevin to the staff of ITS. Joe joins us in the role of Senior Programmer Analyst on the Administrative Systems team in Enterprise Applications. Joe spent the previous 15+ years working as a Senior Technical Consultant for Ellucian and Sun Guard Higher Education. During this time Joe provided consulting services to over 150 schools in the areas of Banner Student, Advancement and Self Service. Prior to his time at Ellucian Joe spent 10 years as a Senior Project Analyst at the University of Vermont.
Some of you may also know Joe from his time here at Middlebury. As an Ellucian employee Joe participated as a consultant and programmer to guide Middlebury’s original implementation of the Banner Student module.
Please take an opportunity to say hello and introduce yourselves to Joe. We’re very excited to have Joe on our team and look forward to the benefits of the vast experience he brings to our organization.
Through March 20th, students, faculty, and staff affiliated with both Middlebury College and the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey will have trial access to a Human Rights Studies Online – a research and learning database providing comparative documentation, analysis, and interpretation of major human rights violations and atrocity crimes worldwide from 1900 to 2010. This collection includes primary and secondary materials in multiple media types.Look it over and let us know what you think! Email your feedback to email@example.com or your liaison.
If there’s something you’d like the library to explore or purchase, let us know at go/requests.
Thanks to an agreement with ConnectNY we have expanded our direct request borrowing options beyond the NExpress consortium. Both systems retain separate databases; records aren’t shared between catalogs, rather searches are transferred from one system to another. (Which means each catalog must be searched separately for the item you are interested in.)
If you don’t find what you are looking for in the NExpress catalog, there will be a button (like this:) to search for the item in the ConnectNY Catalog. If the item is found in ConnectNY, you can now request the item, just as you would place a request in the NExpress system.
Logging onto Middlebury web sites just got easier to do on your phone, tablet, or other small screen. Today we updated the Central Authentication Service (CAS) theme to dynamically reformat itself so that login form is easy to use on any screen size. No longer will you have to side-scroll or zoom to enter your username and password to access authenticated services.

Alexander Street Drama – loaded with information about theatrical productions and with full-text scripts for many (but not all) plays by a wide breadth of playwrights, Alexander Street Drama includes Black Drama, Asian-American Drama, Latino Drama, and more.
Kanopy Streaming – members of the Middlebury College Community can now watch films from Kanopy (“Netflix for colleges”). Our access to this uses a “Patron-Driven Acquisitions” model. A film in the collection can be watched by any authorized user (student, faculty, staff member) anywhere, anytime – just click this link. The fourth time a given film is viewed, a purchase will be “triggered” and we will have licensed access to that film for a year.
American History in Video – a student requested that we trial this collection of newsreels, documentaries and other historical film works. Browse by event, person, place, and more.
National Anti-Slavery Standard – still in pre-publication, this is a database of images and some full-text from the National Anti-Slavery Standard – the official weekly newspaper of the American Anti-Slavery Society. Founded in 1833 by William Lloyd Garrison and Arthur Tappan, the society sought to extend the rights of slaves across the country and implied not only suffrage rights for colored males, but also advocated suffrage for women.
