An Outlook reminder just told Barbara, Linda and me to start preparing the next LIS eNewsletter, so now seems like a good time to give everyone else a reminder on how to get announcements into the eNewsletter.
Once a month, Barbara, Linda and I review blog posts and topic suggestions. In consultation with Mike Roy and the Area Directors, we compile a list of existing blog posts that would be of interest to faculty, staff and students, and we seek authors for suggested posts. We add the “eNewsletter” tag to the posts in our list, then send links out to the campus.
If you want to be sure we consider your post for the eNews, please write to us. We try to be inclusive as possible. We also try to keep the message relatively short and readable.
We look forward to hearing from you!

The library recently added a subscription to Social Explorer, which provides easy online access to demographic information about the United States, from 1790 to present. It allows for the easy creation of thematic maps and downloading into other software products such as PowerPoint. It also provides convenient digital access to two censuses never before available online: 1970 and 1980.
MiddLab is a new section of Middlebury’s website with no precedent: an academic network, uniting all of the… blah, blah blah.
Truth is, MiddLab has been hard for us to explain ever since we heard the idea. A research network featuring discussions and blogs, and linking together disciplinary themes? How does that work? Rather than write a manifesto, here is what we’re trying to accomplish with MiddLab.
We aren’t sure these are the right goals for our site. We’d like to hear from people: what would you like to see in MiddLab? What parts of this site work toward these goals and which don’t? Leave your thoughts by commenting on this page.
Leaving campus for good – or just for all/part of the summer?
Please be on the lookout for materials that belong to the Libraries and return them before you leave campus.
If you have any questions, problems or concerns with returning borrowed materials, please be in touch! Circulation Services staff can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at x5494, and in person at any of the Libraries. Our hours are listed here.
There are book drops available at the Armstrong and the Davis Family Library for returns during open and closed hours. Please return any loaner equipment to the Library it was borrowed from.
If all attempts to reach us fail and you need to urgently return something that cannot safely fit into the book drops, please contact Public Safety.
Before you leave campus, please log in to your library account on My Midcat (go/mymidcat) and alert us to any problems or questions about your account.
A reminder that you are responsible for all materials borrowed on your account. Read about our policies for long overdue, lost or damaged materials here. If you owe any charges, please resolve prior to leaving campus.
Using a Library locker and/or thesis carrel? Be sure to clear your carrels and lockers of all library and personal materials and return the locker/carrel key prior to leaving campus.
Need to borrow when off-campus? Simply request an extended due date at the time of check-out, so that you will not receive unnecessary library overdue and bill notices. If you will be in the vicinity of one of our NExpress partner libraries when off-campus, you can borrow directly from them with your Midd ID.
Thanks! Please be in touch with any borrowing related questions – we are here to help!
