Please use Firefox or Chrome. Internet Explorer does not produce optimum results.
1. This is a map of all of the thesis carrels available for use in the Davis Family Library. Find a section that would meet your needs. If you want a carrel at Armstrong, please ask at the circulation desk of that library.
2. Go here and click on the section you have chosen
3. In MIDCAT, click on the "Book it for date/time (Videos; ONLY for classroom screenings)" link in the middle of the page
4. Enter your Middlebury username and password (NOTE: If you have overdue library materials or fines, you will not be able to proceed beyond this point)
5. Leave all dates as they appear. NOTE: changing dates may result in a key getting double booked, which is not a good thing.
6. Select the carrel key that you would like to book – items that are already booked will not appear in the list
7. Carrel keys are due back at the end of the semester. Do not change the end dates of the booking. If you need the carrel key longer than a semester, you will be able to renew the key at a later date.
8. Click submit
