We have a library guide for every language program this summer, from Spanish, to Hebrew to Chinese and more. Browse a complete list of subjects here.
Every guide is carefully curated by a Middlebury librarian. You’ll find links to lists of in-language books, search tips, and answers to questions that are commonly asked by students studying your language.
Most importantly, you’ll find contact information for a librarian who can help you find exactly what you need. Use the “Schedule Appointment” button, or send an email, to sign up for a one-on-one research consultation with your language librarian. If we can talk with you about what you’re working on, we can ensure you’re getting exactly what you need.
Find your favorite research guide at go.middlebury.edu/guides.
Welcome back to the libraries, alumni! We know that even though you’ve graduated, you’ll never stop learning. We want to be sure you’re aware that the scholarly journals in JSTOR and Project Muse are available to you. After signing up for a Midd alumni account, you can use JSTOR and Project Muse from anywhere. For more information including instructions on how to sign up, see How do I get Alumni Access to JSTOR and Project Muse?
We hope you enjoy reunion! Here are a few tips to welcome you back to the libraries.
Computers and Library Databases
Use our computers and library databases while you’re here in the library! Just ask for a guest username and password at the front desk. (Or, for quick a email inbox check, look for the computers that are already logged in on the main level of both libraries.)
To connect your phone or other device to the wireless network, create a guest account by following the instructions here: Get started with wireless.
Borrowing, printing and more
You may also find our information (including borrowing privileges and printing advice) for guest and alumni patrons useful: Guests and Visitors to the College.
Just for fun
We put the yearbooks out for you this weekend. Find yours! They’re all on display in the atrium of the Davis Family Library.
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.
