Looking for an ebook you used recently but that seems to have vanished? Let us know right away; we can probably get it back. Our major ebook program is undergoing some changes due to soaring costs and increasing publisher restrictions on usage. A large number of titles will disappear from our catalog this week. The process is designed to leave available anything that’s been used recently, but because of behind-the-scenes technical work, there’s a lag between the vendor’s most recent usage reports and the actual catalog-record deletion. As a result, you may have used a title in the last two weeks and now can’t find it again. Just ask us to recover it, and if our supplier still has it available, we will!
We also added a new collection recently, with more than 140,000 ebooks from EBSCO. Check it out!

ITS will implement a new “spam quarantine” feature on Friday, July 22, 2016. This change will help keep spam and phishing messages out of your mailbox, better protecting the Middlebury College community from phishing attacks and other email-borne threats. The new quarantine feature will change how you manage messages identified as spam by the mail system. Spam email will now be placed in a separate quarantine area, rather than being directed to your Junk Email folder.
Important: All messages in your quarantine area should be treated with special caution as they are most likely harmful to you and others! Do not click any links in these messages or release them to your Inbox unless you are absolutely sure that the message is legitimate. Be particularly suspicious of messages asking you to update your account, reset your password, expand your email storage quota, etc. Remember, any message that asks for your password or username is not to be trusted. For more information about how to protect yourself from phishing attacks, please see go/phish.
Messages identified as spam will be stored in the Spam Quarantine for 15 days. If you have received suspect messages, Microsoft will send you a daily “Spam Notification” email message. The messages are sent from email@example.com, once per day.
If you are missing a time-critical message, check your Junk E-Mail folder first, then check the Spam Quarantine, via go/quarantine.
For more details on managing the spam with the Spam Quarantine, as well as tips on how to use the the Blocked Senders/Safe Senders tools to allow or block specific email message senders, please visit go/spam.
MIIS users: Please be sure to login using the “firstname.lastname@example.org” format, “miis.edu” will not be recognized.
