Please note that the Main Level and the Lower Level have at-grade exits but the Upper Level and Mezzanines are accessed only by the elevators, which may not be used in case of fire. If you are a wheelchair user and you can’t exit the building during a fire alarm, wait inside one of the stairwells for rescue personnel. If possible, note the staircase number (1-4) and ask someone exiting the building to notify emergency responders of your location, or call 911 from a cell phone to alert rescuers of your location. The stairwells are designed as “safe zones” during a fire with doors that shut automatically and an independent air circulation system.

CTLR supports teaching and learning at Middlebury in a wide variety of ways. For students, it is a hub of educational inquiry and academic growth in writing, oral presentation, quantitative reasoning, time management, as well as course content tutoring. Students can also get information and advice about undergraduate research opportunities and about a number of nationally competitive fellowships and scholarships. For faculty, it offers resources and programs to advance teaching. Beginning in the 2014/15 academic year, it will also include the new Academic Technology team and the new Digital Liberal Arts initiative.&nbsp;&nbsp; x3131 - brewer@middlebury.edu
  
Library &amp; Information Services encourages groups and individuals to present displays of library materials to coincide with current events on campus or in the world at large. (Space may also be made available for displays that do not specifically feature library materials.)
+
=== Displays ===
  
The person or group requesting the space determines the content of displays. The person or group designs, installs, and removes the display with the assistance of LIS staff. Please remember that all policies in the College Handbook related to "Community Standards" must be adhered to. If a display includes content added by individuals, the presenters are responsible for checking the content daily to ensure that "Community Standards" are being upheld and the desplay doesn't include, for instance, slanderous statements or hate speech.

Except where other policies take precedence, library rooms may be reserved by current faculty, staff and students. When they are not reserved, most rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Visitors and guest borrowers should be aware that members of the College community have priority in the use of most library spaces and services.
  
What follows is a brief checklist of things to keep in mind when preparing a display FOR THE mAIN LIBRARY--  
+
Seminar Room (LIB230)<br/> Capacity = 18.&nbsp; The Seminar Room offers the latest in video conferencing technology, opening the door to distance teaching and learning. Send and receive high-quality video, audio and computer generated data streams around the world. To check availability and reserve this room see:&nbsp; '''go/scheduling'''

*Vending: Students groups that want to sell anything must first apply to the Center for Campus Activities &amp; Leadership (CCAL) for a vending permit. <br> * Time and Place: decide when you’d like to present your display. Discuss space options with the LIS Facilities Coordinator who will schedule your display in the calendar.<br> * Plan: create a detailed plan for your display. Decide how you’d like it to look. Danielle Rougeau installs many exhibits for LIS and can offer advice on design. What materials will you need? You may want to consult a Reference Librarian to see what library materials would be appropriate for your display. Gather things like poster board and images for signage. If your display will include media or computing equipment like a computer, be sure to reserve those items in advance through the Helpdesk. (Be sure that you have the legal right to copy anything like images, text, video clips, etc. that you copy to create your display.) If your display is related to an upcoming event, consider including information referring to the display in the promotional materials for the event. Each display should indicate who presented it and include contact information that can be used if people viewing it have questions or comments.<br> * Select library materials: If you are using library materials in your display, the day before you install your display, gather the materials from the shelves and give them to the Circulation Desk to change the status of the materials from “available” to “on display” so that library users will be able to locate the items.<br> * Install: take all your materials and mount your display. Remember not to damage surfaces. Everything you do should be completely reversible and you should leave the display area in the same condition it was in before you installed your display. Please bring all the tools and supplies (tape, scissors, etc.) you’ll need to complete your work with you. Schedule a time with Media Services through the LIS Helpdesk to install any media equipment. If you're using any of the mobile display units coordinate the timing of their placement with the LIS Facilities Coordinator.<br> * Publicize: work with LIS staff to set up promotional signage to direct people to your display. Submit a listing to Events at Middlebury.<br> * Removal: when your display is scheduled to end, take it down right away and return and library materials to the Circulation Desk to have the status changed from “on display” back to “available”. LIS staff will return the books to the shelves.

#If the lab is not available then look for another space with the same software. Depending on the required software, the virtual desktop might be a solution.

ADA Access

Library and Information Services strives to provide the best possible service to persons with disabilities. To request special accommodations not mentioned here, please contact the Middlebury College ADA office in Meeker House. 802-443-5936 (voice) ada@middlebury.edu   802-443-7437 (TTY) 802-443-2440 (fax)

Entrance

Users are encouraged to park in the designated spots on Old Chapel Road and enter the library through the front door. Special access to the Storrs Ave. doors for students is arranged through the ADA coordinator and for Faculty/Staff through Human Resources. Members of the general public may apply for such access at the Circulation Desk. Only members of the public with government issued Handicapped Persons plates or placard will be granted access

Emergency Exits

Please note that the Main Level and the Lower Level have at-grade exits but the Upper Level and Mezzanines are accessed only by the elevators, which may not be used in case of fire. If you are a wheelchair user and you can’t exit the building during a fire alarm, wait inside one of the stairwells for rescue personnel. If possible, note the staircase number (1-4) and ask someone exiting the building to notify emergency responders of your location, or call 911 from a cell phone to alert rescuers of your location. The stairwells are designed as “safe zones” during a fire with doors that shut automatically and an independent air circulation system.

Elevator #2 in the NE corner of the building is designed to operate on the emergency generator during a power failure.

Retrieving Materials
Some users may not be able to reach all of the library shelves and some people may have trouble reading the call numbers on the spines of the books. Users may request assistance with book retrieval by contacting Circulation Services in person, by phone x5494, or email.

Special Collections

LIB101 (Davis Family Library, Lower Level)

https://www.middlebury.edu/library/special-collections

Wilson Media Development Lab

LIB 220 (Davis Family Library Main Level) Capacity = 15

The Wilson Media Lab is dedicated primarily to the support and development of media projects. DLINQ Interns are available for help with coursework and projects, their availability is on the DLINQ Labs site. Faculty members may get help with a class by contacting DLINQ.

The room is also used for research workshops. Non-library staff and faculty may reserve the room, no earlier than 7 days in advance, by contacting Doreen Bernier (dbernier@middlebury.edu or x5595).

The room should be used for training sessions where every individual needs a computer; meetings should not be scheduled in this room.

If the room is not being used for a training session, it is open as a computer lab.

Guidelines for Library staff who wish to schedule the room:

For workshops that require specialized software in the Wilson Media Lab:

  1. If the lab is not available then look for another space with the same software. Depending on the required software, the virtual desktop might be a solution.
  2. If no alternatives are available, determine whether the workshop can be scheduled at another date/time. (Course-related workshops have less flexibility than open workshops.)
  3. If the workshop cannot be scheduled at another date/time, contact the person who has booked the lab and ask if you can look for another space for them. If there are no alternatives, your request cannot be accommodated. Try for another date/time.'

For research workshops:

  1. Consider: Can it be held in another space in the library? Especially when the workshop is more than one month away, try to use another room. Can it be held in the Armstrong Library (MBH161)? Most of these workshops are course-related; can your workshop be held in the regular course meeting space?
  2. If you cannot use another room, schedule the workshop in the lab.

Other spaces to consider for workshops (check for yourself before you book!):

  • LIB140
  • LIB145
  • LIB221
  • LIB116 (no projection)
  • LIB131 (no projection)
  • CTLR
  • MBH161 (Armstrong Library)
  • MBH116/117
  • SDL122
  • and more here in this list of public computers
  • LIB140, MBH116/117 and SDL 122 are scheduled by the Scheduling Office. CTLR spaces are scheduled by JoAnn Brewer. MBH161 is scheduled by Armstrong staff and librarians. Most of the other library rooms in the list are in Outlook and I believe that Library and ITS staff should be able to book them directly.
