Due to the holidays and shipping madness, the increased risk of losses, and the lack of libraries open or willing to send things, the Interlibrary Loan Department limits ordering and shipping during the second half of December.
If you need anything before winter break request it now! Interlibrary loan requests submitted to ILLiad after Dec. 18th will be ordered in early January.
ILLiad article requests will continue to be filled by RapidILL through Dec. 20st, but requests must have a valid ISSN and year to be processed by Rapid.
For loan materials use NExpress: (http://go/NExpress). NExpress will stay open during break. Requests placed in NExpress go straight to the Lending Library for processing. Loans ordered from NExpress over break should arrive in early January.

As announced in this recent post, the Middlebury College Libraries recently subscribed to the six Oxford Language Dictionaries on the Oxford Language Dictionaries Online (OLDO) platform – Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish.
About a week later, Oxford announced the release of their new Oxford Arabic Dictionary
on the Oxford Dictionaries platform. We now have subscribed access to this brand new online dictionary also! (In case you’re wondering, the dictionaries currently on OLDO will be migrated to the new Oxford Dictionaries platform in the near future.)
Not interested in this, but there is something else you wish we had? Let us know!
