There are lots of places you can go to find people at Middlebury engaged in social media, but most of these are the official content of campus Departments and Offices. We are putting together a new site to highlight the informal online activities of Middlebury faculty, students, and staff. There are a great number of blogging about your life experiences, putting together fun videos, showing off your photography, and organizing for causes, or just for fun with social media.
Send anything you think other people would be interested in seeing to firstname.lastname@example.org, or feel free to add it to the comment here! Expect to see another post here soon letting you know where to go to see what your peers are up to!

How do you create a disturbance in the collection management area? Sneak up on Mary Ruth on her last day of work upon retiring and catch her working! Boy was she surprised by the camera and sneaky photographer.
But wait, what’s that commotion? Kristin and Joanne can’t wait for their own retirment day and they get in on the celebration!
But wait…another retiree. Judy jumps in and now no one can keep a straight face.
Ok stop clowning around – now its time for the (relatively) serious shot
And finally, Mary Ruth and her long-time colleague Bill Warren pose for their own photo.
What a day! We will miss all our retires – it won’t be as fun here without them. More photos can be found on the server in the path N:\Orgs\LIS\LISstaff\People & Social\MaryRuth Crawford Retirement.

June 10th was the opening day of “Exh!bited”, the LIS staff arts and crafts exhibit.
Special thanks to all the LIS artisans for their truly beautiful contributions. This was a great opportunity to showcase our special talents and interests and bring the community together – and also surprise and delight users and visitors.
The opening reception was graced with beautiful live music, courtesy of Dan Frostman.
Early arrivals enjoyed the only edible craft piece - chocolate dipped strawberries.
Included below are some photos from the reception.
The exhibit organizers, Morgan, Doreen and Elin, would like to thank Joseph for his invaluable assistance in setting up the space. Thanks also to Scott and Rachel for their contributions, and with thanks to all for taking the time out from your busy schedules to assist in bringing this exhibit to life.
The exhibit will run until June 26th.
