Weekly Web Updates – June 17, 2019

We launched a new website for the Library this week, featuring library hours coming out of their LibCal system instead of the Google Calendars we were previously using.

Updates

  • Drupal link_attributes 8.x-1.8
  • WordPress redirection plugin 4.3.1
  • WordPress seriously-simple-podcasting plugin 1.20.3
  • WordPress the-events-calendar plugin 4.9.3.1

Fixes and Tweaks

  • Standardized the way that header and sidebar navigation works on the new office sites so that header nav is consistent throughout the site and sidebar nav is contextual.
  • Embeded webforms from forms.middlebury.edu will now include the new Middlebury website styles.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented the new Drupal video component from playing when you clicked the splash image.
  • Changed the way our Drupal deployment handles CSS and JS assets. This is now done with a simple file copy operation on each of the frontend servers, rather than a full build process, which speeds up deployment and removes a binary that was hanging and eating up the CPU.
  • Increased resources allocated to the sites.middlebury.edu server.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new “Offices” site for institution-wide anchor functions.
  • Creating new Drupal 8 sites for our schools and programs.
  • Upgrading the Course Hub to Drupal 8.

Summer Reading!

Summer’s almost here! The library has added 30 new titles to our print browsing collection, and another 30 (including many non-English titles) to our collection of e- and audiobooks (go/overdrive/). These books are available for borrowing by the entire College community, so enjoy the copious Vermont sun with some lemonade and a new book!

MLA Bibliography Has Moved to EBSCOhost

MLA has made the decision to move their content from the ProQuest platform to the EBSCOhost platform. You may already be familiar with EBSCOhost if you’ve accessed our eBook collection, or any other number of databases hosted by EBSCO.

What does this mean for you?

The content is the same! It’s still the MLA Bibliography, but it looks different. What, exactly, has changed? The basic and advanced search forms, buttons for emailing and saving records, and links to access articles and books via full-text databases, MIDCAT, and Interlibrary Loan — all of these appear in slightly different locations, fonts or colors. But overall, MLA via EBSCOhost will feel at least somewhat familiar, we expect.  

MLA Search Form
Search form for MLA via EBSCOhost

How to adapt to this change?

Visit MLA on the EBSCOhost platform and take a look around. Then, update any personal bookmarks to point to the MLA via EBSCOhost:  http://go.middlebury.edu/mla.

Questions or concerns?

Please reach out to your library liaison for assistance.

Stargazing at Mittelman Observatory – Summer 2019

Mittelman Observatory and Middlebury Physics will again host stargazing open house nights this summer. These Observatory events are scheduled for Wednesday evenings, June 26, July 3, July 24, July 31, and August 7, from 9:00 PM until 10:30 PM, weather permitting.

Jupiter and Saturn will be in the evening sky on many of these dates. A variety of interesting stars, star clusters, and nebulae will also be visible through the Observatory’s telescopes. The Observatory includes a 24-inch telescope in a dome and smaller telescopes on the roof.

Observatory open house nights are free and open to the public. As these are minimal language events, they are also appropriate for Language Schools students. These events will take place only if the sky is expected to be mostly clear. Please check the Observatory web site at go/observatory or call the Observatory at 443-2266 after 7 PM on the evening of the event for weather status.
