Please welcome Mike Lally, a MuseumWorks intern who is working with Wendy up in Armstrong. Mike is a rising senior, majoring in physicsand art history. He will be working on researching and cataloging items in the Antique Scientific Instruments collection, and learning about digital preservation. In the end, we hope to digitize a subset of the collection – including 3-D scanning! – and he will create a new exhibit for the Armstrong lobby area. He has already discovered treasure in the collection, so we will be posting semi-regularly on the exciting find-of-the-week. Stay tuned!

Items that can leave the Library:
Calculators: These have a four hour loan rule and may be taken outside of the Library.
Mac VGA Adapters: These are found in the same drawer as the calculators and have a 4 hour loan rule. These are typically checked out with LCD projectors and may be taken out of the Library.
LCD Projectors: These are kept in the equipment cabinet in room 208 and have a loan period of one day. If a patron walks in without booking an LCD projector beforehand, be absolutely sure that the one you check out to them does not have a booking that day or the following day. To do this search “LCD Projector” as a title in Search\Holds, double click the record with the corresponding number appearing on the projector, and click on the bookings tab when in the Item Record. If it has a booking the dates of the booking will appear in the record. Continue reading
We have made the Armstrong Science library an official pick up location for ILL and NExpress materials. If you select Armstrong delivery, your requested materials will be automatically sent to the Armstrong Science Library for pick up when they arrive at Middlebury.
This is now possible for both NExpress and interlibrary loan materials. However, selecting this option is done very differently in each system.
- For NExpress the choice is made each time an item is ordered, through a drop-down menu. Select Armstrong Science library from the list of available pick up locations. go/NExpress
- For ILLiad, the choice is made at registration. In order for a current ILLiad user to change their preferred delivery location in ILLiad, you will need to update your contact Information in the Tools menu in ILLiad. Click on “Edit My Contact Information” and select Armstrong Science Library as your “Delivery Site” to take advantage of this new service. You can return to regular pick up at the Davis Family Library at any time by returning to ILLiad and changing your selected delivery site back to Davis Family Library. go/ill
