You can search library databases from off campus! Just start at the library site: http://go.middlebury.edu/lib. JSTOR, ebooks, audiobooks, Summon and all of our online journals, magazines and newspapers are there for you…no matter where you are!
When you’re off campus, links that are on library web pages (for example, Research Guides, Summon and the Journals list) will ask you to log in with Midd credentials. It’s as easy as that!
Spoiler alert! The 5 quick tips include: 1. The Circulation Desk is where you’ll check out all of your library materials, including CDs, equipment and interlibrary loans. 2. Library collections include not only books but also DVDs, graphic novels in the Browsing section, dictionaries in the Reference section, manuscripts downstairs in Special Collections, and magazines in the Harman Periodicals Area. 3. Librarians can help you in person at the Research Desk and online via the library web site at http://go.middlebury.edu/lib. 4. Technology and media assistance is available at the Tech Help Desk and the Wilson Media Lab. 5. Peer Writing Tutors are ready to meet with you at the Center for Teaching, Learning and Research (CTLR). BONUS! The library has all kinds of study spaces, from the Wilson Cafe at the entrance of the building, to senior thesis carrels tucked away on the upper levels.
Seniors who are currently enrolled in 500, 600, or 700 level thesis/project work are eligible for a thesis carrel either at the library. If you register for one of these classes you may sign up ONLINE for a Davis Family Library carrel starting at 8 am on Monday, September 17th. Instructions can be found here (go/bookacarrel). Note: Please use Firefox or Chrome browsers.
For a carrel at Armstrong Library, please go directly to that circulation desk on Monday the 17th to reserve.
All books in thesis carrels must be checked out and display the thesis bookmark indicating it’s checked out to you.
