Our newest video tutorial offers students some helpful tips for those moments when they feel stuck in their research, or are just not sure what to do next. There’s no need to struggle in silence! Middlebury College Librarians are here to help with all research problems.
The 2018 Clifford Symposium starts today! Come to Davis Family Library to see our display of related works, including titles noted in The Origin of Others and other works by Toni Morrison.
Also find a multimedia presentation of original audio of Toni Morrison reading from her (then still unpublished) novel Song of Solomon, while teaching at the Breadloaf School of English in 1977. Thanks to Special Collections for providing this recording and related photographs!
Tonight, December 6, 2017, we’ll be hosting the Third Annual Middlebury College Write-In, sponsored by CTLR, the Writing Program, Middlebury College Libraries, and the Anderson Freeman Resource Center. This event creates a one-stop place for students to get everything they need to hammer out those last papers in a fun and supportive environment. It’s like an academic writing party at the library!
The Write-In will be happening from 8-11 pm at Davis Family Library, and 8:30-11pm at the AFC. Both Write-In locations will feature snacks, hot chocolate, writing tutors, a research librarian, and lots of moral support from friends. This event has been a great success the last two years, and we’re hoping to make this one the best so far!
It was a hit last spring, and so we’re doing it again: on Wednesday, December 7, the CTLR, the Writing Center, and the Library are hosting the second Middlebury Write-In! Students can attend at either the Davis Family Library or the Anderson Freeman Resource Center to find a productive, social, and supportive environment designed to help them focus on their writing. There will be food, prizes, and writing and research help on hand to make end-of-term writing less stressful and more fun. The Write-In begins at 8 pm and lasts until 11pm, but students are welcome to come any time!
What: Middlebury Write-In!
