This guide is designed to help you with your research for your FYSE. It was created by your class librarian, Brenda Ellis. Please reach out with any questions about finding or accessing information this semester. My contact informationis in my profile box. If you need help ASAP see the Ask A Librarian options. I will see those emails but so will my colleagues.
Reasons to contact a librarian:
The library subscribes to many online resources. To access those resources you have to sign in via Middlebury's system BEFORE you get to the database or website in order to be recognized as a subscriber when you get there.
You do this by starting at the library homepage or research guides and following our links to databases, ebooks, journals, etc. When off-campus you will be prompted for your midd login using our ezproxy system similar to how you login to our computers on campus. If you go straight to an article or database from google when you are off campus, you cannot be authenticated and you won't get access (unless it is a free resource).
