Write Your Thesis with Scrivener
Wednesday, April 29th
Are you working on a large writing project? Scrivener can help! Scrivener is a software program that breaks down your writing into manageable “chunks,” and brings your research and writing together into a single conceptual workspace.
The library will offer a Scrivener workshop on April 29th at 4:30p.m. Participants will learn how to create a new writing project, how to import existing work, and how to outline, research, and write with Scrivener’s unique features. This workshop is aimed at thesis writers but is open to all members of the College community. For more information on Scrivener and to sign up for the workshop, visit go.middlebury.edu/scrivener.
Maintenance Window: 12:00am to 4:00am ET on April 17, 2017
In order to increase the resilience and reliability of our cloud platform we will be conducting network maintenance during the window above. At this time, your site will be operational but may notice a slight decrease in performance.
Middlebury has two-week trial access to the iPoll Databank from the Roper Center at the University of Connecticut, one of the world’s leading archives of social science data, specializing in data from public opinion surveys.
In order to increase the resilience and reliability of our cloud platform we will be conducting network maintenance on 3/27/2015 between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m., EST. During this time sites will be unavailable for extended periods of time.
If you are asked to help a campus visitor who would like to use our wireless network, don’t panic! Read on to learn how you can save the day… as well as help other visitors plan ahead.
A guest is on campus NOW and doesn’t have a Middlebury guest account. What should they do?
For now, the quickest route for visitors who did not create a Middlebury guest account before arriving on campus (or who created one but forgot their account password) is to connect using our Midd-standard wireless network. Contact the Technology Helpdesk (802.443.2200) to obtain the password.
I know someone who is planning a campus visit. How can I make their experience easier?
The smoothest route is to have guests follow these instructions to create a guest account prior to their arrival on campus. When they arrive on campus, they’ll simply select the MiddleburyCollege wireless network on their device then supply their guest account credentials to connect.
What can guests do LATER ON, when the new GuestAccountCreation wireless network is available?
After the GuestAccountCreation wireless network is available, visitors who did not create a guest account in advance will be able to follow these instructions to create a guest account from on campus. (Do you have frequent visitors? Here’s a handy cheat sheet you can share!)
Please note that the GuestAccountCreation wireless network is NOT yet available; we are hoping to proceed with its launch during spring break. Stay tuned for updates.
