Experience the Library in Your Language

We have a library guide for every language program this summer, from Spanish, to Hebrew to Experience the library in your languageChinese and more. Browse a complete list of subjects here.

Every research guide is carefully curated  by a Middlebury librarian. You’ll find links to lists of in-language books, search tips, and answers to questions that are commonly asked by students in your language program.

Most importantly,  you’ll find contact information for the librarian who can help you find exactly what you need. Use the “Schedule Appointment” button, or send an email, to sign up for a one-on-one research consultation. If we can talk with you about what you’re working on, we can ensure you’re getting exactly what you need.

Welcome back, alumni! Never stop learning

Welcome back to the libraries, alumni! We know that even though you’ve graduated, you’ll never stop learning. We want to be sure you’re aware that  the scholarly journals in JSTOR and Project Muse are available to you. After signing up for a Midd alumni Never stop learningaccount, you can use JSTOR and Project Muse from anywhere. For more information including instructions on how to sign up, see How do I get Alumni Access to JSTOR and Project Muse?

We hope you enjoy reunion! Here are a few tips to welcome you back to the libraries.

Computers and  Library Databases

Use our computers and library databases while you’re here in the library! Just ask for a guest username and password at the front desk. (Or, for quick a email inbox check, look for the computers that are already logged in on the main level of both libraries.)

Wireless

To connect your phone or other device to the wireless network, create a guest account by following the instructions here: Get started with wireless.

Borrowing, printing and more

You may also find our information (including borrowing privileges and printing advice) for guest and alumni patrons useful: Guests and Visitors to the College.

Just for fun

Find yourself in your yearbook! The yearbooks are right at the beginning of the Reference Collection on the main level of the Davis Family Library, just beyond the DVDs.

Borrow a bike from the library

Borrow a bike from the library circulation deskWe know there’s still snow on the ground, but we’ve seen a sure sign of spring! Yes, the loaner bikes are back at the Davis Family Library. You can find the purple beauties locked to the bike rack at the front entrance.

Check out a key at the circulation desk. You’ll need a sticker for your ID. Fill  this out to get it: Loaner Bike Form.

No more free Washington Post

For anyone who remembers that we ever had free Washington Post access, I’m writing to let you know that we no longer do. A bunch of years ago, it was possible to register with a .edu address to get 25 free articles per month. Arabella found this page which indicates that the opportunity is still available for .gov and .mil, but not .edu  (https://helpcenter.washingtonpost.com/hc/en-us/articles/115007248227-Start-a-free-subscription-with-a-valid-gov-or-mil-email-address).

The lib/its blog post that publicized this access has been deleted.
