Library Services

During the summer session Bread Loaf faculty at all campuses have access not only to their campus libraries but also to the full resources and services of the Middlebury College Library, with over one million holdings, in print, online, and recorded form. These resources include:

  • Middlebury's online catalog (MIDCAT)
  • Electronic delivery of articles in Middlebury's collection and beyond using Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)
  • BLSE Library Research Guide, compiled specifically for Bread Loaf students, with links to a full range of online references, databases, and resources (JSTOR, Project MUSE, Early English Books Online) particularly useful for research in the humanities.

These resources are available through the Middlebury Library webpages; in some cases users will need to log on, and they will be prompted to enter their Middlebury username and password.
