Library Learning Lunch – June 22nd

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Staff Council is aware that many Middlebury College staff members do not know that they can use the Library’s resources just as students and faculty can. So, as part of its ongoing series of Learning Lunches, Staff Council is grateful that Brenda Ellis has agreed to offer a (re)introduction of some of Davis Family Library’s resources to interested staff and faculty members.

The Learning Lunch will not only help staff members become aware of some of these resources, but will also showcase what’s new in the Davis Family Library now that the contents of the former Music Library have been moved in. We also have a new search method for finding answers to your research needs (“Summon”), and more!

Please join us as Brenda shows us what’s new (and not so new) about the Davis Family Library and its resources!

Wednesday, June 22, noon until 1pm
Room 145 of Davis Family Library

Next Learning Lunch – the “new” Davis Family Library

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Staff Council’s Learning Lunch on June 22nd will be an introduction (or re-introduction) to the Davis Family Library for staff and faculty.

Those of us who work in the Library have been surprised to learn that many staff members are not aware that they can use the Library’s resources just as students and faculty can. We are offering this Learning Lunch not only to help make staff aware of some of these resources, but also showcase what’s new in the Davis Family Library now that the contents of the former Music Library are here. There is also a new search method for finding answers to your research needs, and more!

Please join us as Brenda Ellis shows us what’s new (and not so new) about the Davis Family Library and its resources!
