AgendaIn this meeting we will look at the Video Streaming Service project. In-progress project presentations are open meetings, anyone may attend. Please feel free to share the invitation with anyone you feel is interested in the topics discussed.
We’ve received a number of noise complaints recently. Just a reminder that especially at this time of the year, students will appreciate our attempts to keep conversations in public spaces as quiet as possible. Thank you!

On Wednesday, May 4th from 8-11 PM, the Writing Center at Middlebury College will join 75 other colleges and universities who sponsor a Write-In between the weeks of April 24-May 5. Supported by CTLR, the Writing Program and the Library, the Write-In fosters a writing community by creating a calm time and space in LIB 201, LIB 145 and the Harman Reading Room for students to write together. A Peer Writing Tutor and a Research Librarian will be on hand in LIB 201 to provide support. During the Write-In, students may work on academic papers, do personal writing, or brainstorm writing for fellowships, internships, and jobs. We’ll provide snacks and prizes. See Swarthmore’s International Write-In page for more information.
Why come to a Write-In?
Writing can be lonely, solitary work. Joining a group of other student writers can be motivating, productive, and calming.
How will this work?
- Come to Davis Family Library 201 any time between 8-11 PM. Stay from 15 minutes to 3 hours.
- Sign in to receive prizes
- If you want, we’ll give you a pen and a pad.
- Have some tasty snacks (Cheese and Crackers, Chicken Satay, Rice Krispie Treats, Brownies)
- Meet with a Peer Writing Tutor or Research Librarian.
- Stay in Lib 201, or go to one of our two reserved quiet spaces: Lib 145 and the Harman Reading Room.
What kind of writing should I do?
- Academic writing (Start your end of the semester papers this week!) (We’ll provide some research questions.)
- Personal writing (No idea where to start? We’ll provide some writing prompts.)
- Brainstorm writing for fellowships, internships, and job applications (We have a handy worksheet to get you started.)
Who is making this great event happen?
In celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the completion of Mead Chapel and Hepburn Hall, Special Collections presents a series of posts featuring interactive before-and-after imagery of these Middlebury icons.
Built with the help of a $60,000 donation from former governor Dr. John Mead to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his graduation from Middlebury in 1864, Mead Chapel was dedicated on June 18th, 1916 and marked “the completion of two years’ work and its entrance into the history of Middlebury as a meeting place for religious worship by faculty and students.”
Below is an interactive slider with images of Mead from the archives (tap or click on the bar to slide between images). The before image comes from the scrapbook of Arthur Thomas Vaughn, Class of 1917, and shows scaffolding around the spire. The after image is a 1916 postcard marking the completion of the chapel.
