Going away this summer? Take the library with you!
You can search library databases from off campus. Just start at the library site: go.middlebury.edu/lib. From there, JSTOR, ebooks, audiobooks, Summon and all of our online journals, magazines and newspapers are available to you…no matter where you are!
When you’re off campus, links that are on library web pages (a few examples of library web pages include Research Guides, Summon and the Journals list) will ask you to log in with Midd credentials. It’s as easy as that!
Seniors: Here’s how to get alumni access to library databases!
Enjoy the summer!
We love books!
But we don’t stop there.
We have streaming video, VR headsets, DVDs, iPads, laptops, newspapers, magazines, CDs, bikes, bestsellers, study rooms, graphic novels and more!
To learn more, ask a librarian!
We know there’s still snow on the ground, but we’ve seen a sure sign of spring! Yes, the loaner bikes are back at the Davis Family Library. You can find the purple beauties locked to the bike rack at the front entrance.
Check out a key at the circulation desk. You’ll need a sticker for your ID. Fill this out to get it: Loaner Bike Form.
For anyone who remembers that we ever had free Washington Post access, I’m writing to let you know that we no longer do. A bunch of years ago, it was possible to register with a .edu address to get 25 free articles per month. Arabella found this page which indicates that the opportunity is still available for .gov and .mil, but not .edu (https://helpcenter.washingtonpost.com/hc/en-us/articles/115007248227-Start-a-free-subscription-with-a-valid-gov-or-mil-email-address).
The lib/its blog post that publicized this access has been deleted.
More for Febs and all students! The books and DVDs we brought to the Student Services Fair last week are ready for check-out. Find them near the Research Desk on the Main Level of the Davis Family Library. Take a pencil while you’re there!
Hello, Febs!!! Stay sharp! Visit the Research Desk early and often. You’ll find that librarians are always happy to help. You don’t even need a question! Just tell us what you’re working on and together, we can figure out what you’ll need to do first, next and last.

MIDCAT, our library catalog, has a new URL! All links on the library website have been updated, but your links probably need some attention. If you bookmarked MIDCAT, or if you included links to MIDCAT in your syllabus or course web page, you’ll need to revise the URL.
The new URL is:
Fortunately, revisions will be pretty straightforward: Wherever you have the old URL, just replace it with the new one (see below). This includes links to books and to searches (both of which have some characters after the “biblio.middlebury.edu”).
- Old: http://
- New: http://mbury.iii.com/record=b4194118
Thing to know: The old URL seems to work now, but it won’t last forever.
