LibrarySearch Overview

A guide introducing the various features of the new LibrarySearch interface

In progress alert

Please be aware that the new LibrarySearch is in the process of being created and will not be finalized until January 2024. So, not all parts of the interface will be working properly. Please give us a bit of grace in your assessment as we work to get the new system up and running. More information on this process can be found here.

What is LibrarySearch?

LibrarySearch is a search engine covering nearly all of what is available via Middlebury Institute of International Studies Library, including physical and online resources.

Start by searching a few keywords, then narrow your results using the facets on the left side of the results screen. Log in with your Middlebury username and password to renew books, save records to a permanent list, request articles through interlibrary loan, or access the full LibrarySearch results from off campus.  

Although LibrarySearch is the most comprehensive single search tool for library resources, you might also want to search one or more of our individual databases, since many of them can provide a more focused search and not all of the functionality specific to each database can be used in LibrarySearch.

What You Can Search

Everything All content including, online articles (subscribed and/or indexed), print books, e-books, audio and video recordings, and archival content owned by the library
Library Catalog Print books, e-books, audio and video recordings, and archival content, owned by the library
Course Reserves Items held for specific courses and the students participating in the course
