Future of the Library Blog

Dear Reader, 

The library blog is moving to a new platform in early January. This means that all future posts from the library will now come from a different URL, though posts will still appear on the library homepage. If you subscribe to an RSS feed of the library blog, or use a bookmark to access the blog, please note the change by updating with the new URL: We will post again when the switch to the new URL has been made.

The old URL ( will continue to be used by ITS until further notice.

Thank you, Leanne Galletly (Library Web UX Team), please reach out with questions or concerns

Summer Reading Display Results!

Thanks to all who shared their favorite Summer Reading Displaybooks from this summer! We had an interactive display in the atrium last week to learn what the Middlebury community read while they were away for the summer.

The display may be over, but you can still view the list of titles (below) and how to access them on campus! We will also add some titles that weren’t already in our collection.

Thanks for participating! Comment below if your favorite book hasn’t made the list.

List of Titles from Summer Reading Display:

Finding Sources at Middlebury Libraries

The library has millions of resources, but how do you start to find the exact title you’re looking for? The answer isn’t one size fits all. Check out the top ways to find sources below:

Finding sources at the library infographic

Research Guides

Librarian approved! These guides highlight relevant resources and databases on specific subjects and are a great place to start your research. go/guides/


Library search engine, results will show everything  the library has access to. Use the filters on the left side to narrow your results down to a manageable amount. go/summon/


The traditional online library catalog, MIDCAT is a great tool when you know a specific feature of what you’re looking for like the author’s name, title, or subject of the work. go/midcat/

Interlibrary Loan

Fear not! If Middlebury doesn’t have the resource you want, you can still have it (though it might take a little longer than pulling a book off the shelves) Submit an ILL request for anything we’ll get a copy for you! go/ill/

Still Not Sure?

Meet a librarian at the Research Desk or schedule a consultation, no question is too small. go/AskUs/
