Hey Students! Try Our WT Workshop on Research & Zotero

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Are you working on a senior thesis or starting a big research project? Drowning in journal articles and books, but not sure how to keep track of them all? Let us help you with the next stage of your journey as a power researcher in our Winter Term workshop “Zotero and Beyond: Power Research Tips for Student Researchers.” You’ll see how the research process is itself a way of synthesizing your findings and mapping out next steps. By the time you leave, you’ll be an expert in Zotero, the citation management tool that can help you save, organize, and cite your sources, and you’ll encounter a variety of note-taking strategies and see the ways that developing personalized research routines can jump-start you into the writing process.

Wireless Enhancements

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

We’re working to replace and upgrade many of the existing wireless access points across Middlebury campus. You may see staff or contractors working with cabling and ladders in various buildings over the coming weeks.

We are upgrading to keep with the best wireless technology and address coverage or performance concerns. Along with entire building enhancements including McCardell Bicentennial Hall and Davis Family Library, the model we’re wholesale replacing is pictured here. If you see one of these, know that it will be replaced soon!

How tech is changing the way we think and what we think about – There are a myriad of arguments for and against the increased use of technology in everyday life. Futurists and technophiles encourage its use, sure that technology will welcome a new utopia, while luddites rail against the “destructive” nature of technology use.

The Next Wave of Tech Change | Self-Publishing & Libraries (from Library Journal)

Trust, Privacy, Big Data, and E-book readers “… the Amazon Kindle platform is as much a data ingest tool for providing end-user behavior data to Amazon as it is a sales platform for digital media content,…” … “It seems that counter to this trend, libraries and scholarly publishers are the exception to the rule. Whether our community will remain outliers and whether this status is a good thing or not over the long run, remains to be seen.”

In order to allow for flexibility in our hiring, we will be offering the Digital Media Tutor training during the month of January, and are opening up the sessions to all interested faculty, staff and students. This is the same training that we have been using for the Summer Digital Media Tutor program.

The following sessions will introduce the attendees to a wide variety of technologies and uses, including computing practices at Middlebury, concepts and software for developing media, and devices for creating and consuming media. Each session will run for 90 minutes and will take place in the Wilson Media Lab in the Davis Family Library.
