If you search MIDCAT for an item that is checked out, you may notice a “notify me when available” button. When the item gets returned, it will be put on hold for you and you will get an email indicating that it is ready to be picked up.
Starting June 1st, we will turn on requesting of available items so that patrons at Breadloaf and Mills can request these items to be picked up at their respective locations. When this happens, that button will change to “Place Request” because we can only have one distinct button for all web requesting. The function will remain the same, but the text will be different. Once the summer sessions are over, we will revert back to the “notify me when available” button and available items will not be requestable.
Many researchers are surprised and dismayed that there’s no easy way to get to MIDCAT in the new library site. There is!!! If someone can’t find MIDCAT, they’re probably using Internet Explorer version 6. In IE 6, the “Library Quick Search” portal–with MIDCAT, articles, journals and more–displays at the bottom of the front page rather than at the top. We tested the new site on multiple browsers, but alas, this issue didn’t become apparent until after launch. We’ve reported the problem and hope for a resolution soon.
If you can’t find MIDCAT, try scrolling down. Pass it on!

A new feature has been added to Midcat. When viewing the full record of an item you will see a link labeled Cite this title (via OCLC). For most titles, clicking that link will take you to a page at OCLC which will show you the correct format for citing the title in a number of different styles, such as APA, MLA and Turabian.
Oherwise you’ll see a page indicating that citation information may not be available.
