Welcome to the Libraries! Come and say hello to a librarian at the Research Desk. We provide expert research help, bookmarks, collectible library pins and (sometimes) candy! Find us on the main level of the Davis Family Library.
Fall Research Desk Hours (September 9 – December 13)
MLA has made the decision to move their content from the ProQuest platform to the EBSCOhost platform. You may already be familiar with EBSCOhost if you’ve accessed our eBook collection, or any other number of databases hosted by EBSCO.
What does this mean for you?
The content is the same! It’s still the MLA Bibliography, but it looks different. What, exactly, has changed? The basic and advanced search forms, buttons for emailing and saving records, and links to access articles and books via full-text databases, MIDCAT, and Interlibrary Loan — all of these appear in slightly different locations, fonts or colors. But overall, MLA via EBSCOhost will feel at least somewhat familiar, we expect.
How to adapt to this change?
Visit MLA on the EBSCOhost platform and take a look around. Then, update any personal bookmarks to point to the MLA via EBSCOhost: http://go.middlebury.edu/mla.
Take a break from your busy schedule to enjoy a few moments of tranquility at the Davis Family Library.
Special Collections (LIB 101, Lower Level) invites you to an Open House on Friday from 1-4 p.m. “Object Poems” are on exhibit all weekend — learn more about them in the Atrium, Lower Level and Special Collections.
And in case you couldn’t fit yours in your carry-on…yearbooks!!! Look for them on the Middlebury blue book carts in the Atrium!
Use interlibrary loan to obtain materials that are not available at Middlebury Libraries. You’ll receive most articles and chapters via email in only 1-2 days! Books and DVDs take a little longer (average 8 days) because they need to be packaged up and shipped.
Ever wish you could read over the shoulder of that other student in the thesis carrel? It can be helpful to look at models when you’re beginning your own coursework. Our online collection of student scholarship includes papers, presentations and projects from Computer Science, Economics, English, Environmental Studies, Geology, History, History of Art and Architecture, Religion and more.
