Students, faculty and staff of Middlebury now have access to all five collections of a comprehensive set of periodicals published between 1684 and 1912, and curated by the American Antiquarian Society.
From the Colonial Era through the Civil War and Reconstruction, this set comprises nearly 6,000 periodical titles – with full text and images. Find them by title, subject or keyword in Midcat, or by title in our Journals A-Z list.
The Middlebury library has purchased access to three sets of Oxford’s online bibliographies. Oxford Bibliographies offers exclusive, authoritative research guides; these bibliographies combine the best features of an annotated bibliography and a high-level encyclopedia. The subjects we now have access to are:
The Middlebury libraries have acquired access to all 660 volumes of Cambridge Companions. Covering diverse topics – from Claude Levi-Strauss to American Islam, Tacitus to Modern Japanese Culture – the Cambridge Companions are a series of authoritative guides, written by leading experts, offering lively, accessible introductions to major writers, artists, philosophers, topics, and periods.
You can browse from the Cambridge Companions homepage, or find these by title or subject in Midcat or content in the Cambridge Companions will be found in a Summon search.
The Middlebury libraries are pleased to announce access to some new resources for the Middlebury community.
- ProQuest Statistical Abstracts of the World – an authoritative and comprehensive summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic conditions.
- Disability in the modern world – One person in seven experiences disability, yet the story of this community and its contributions is largely absent from the scholarly record. Access to the primary and secondary source materials within this collection enables you to include this important piece of the puzzle in your research.
- National Geographic: 1995 to the current issue – we have had access to this magazine archive through 1994 for several years. Now content up to and including the current issue is available online.
- ProQuest Historical Newspapers, The Atlanta Constitution: 1946-1984 – we have had access to content from 1868 to 1945 for several years; this purchase fills a gap in Southern US news coverage for the mid- to late-twentieth century.
- China: trade, politics, and culture; 1793-1980 – With documents encompassing events from the earliest English embassy to the birth and early years of the People’s Republic, this resource collects sources from nine archives to give an insight into the changes in China during this period.
