UPDATE – Multi-Factor Authentication

ISSUE – Multi-Factor Authentication

We are experiencing an issue with the Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) service which is preventing individuals who are off-campus and whose accounts are protected by MFA from accessing services like Office 365, Email, OneDrive, Google G Suite, and Adobe Creative Cloud. We are working with Microsoft to resolve matters as swiftly as possible, but we do not currently have an estimated repair time. We will provide an update as soon as we know more.

Davis Library plotter and copier/fax changing locations

On Wednesday morning, November 21, the plotter located in Wilson Lab will be moved to the Davis Library public printer room 242. To make room for the plotter, the copier/fax in room 242 is moving downstairs to public printer room 142.  

The plotter relocation will alleviate the noise and disruption in Wilson Lab caused by the plotter printing. ITS Service Desk student consultants have been trained to perform basic plotter maintenance and troubleshooting. DLINQ interns are still available for application-specific support and training.

Summer Reading Display Results!

Thanks to all who shared their favorite Summer Reading Displaybooks from this summer! We had an interactive display in the atrium last week to learn what the Middlebury community read while they were away for the summer.

The display may be over, but you can still view the list of titles (below) and how to access them on campus! We will also add some titles that weren’t already in our collection.

Thanks for participating! Comment below if your favorite book hasn’t made the list.
