As alumni of both Bread Loaf and Middlebury, Bread Loaf graduates have access to a number of Middlebury resources. Alumni may:
- apply for a permanent Middlebury Alumni Identification Card (at a cost of $5 per card) through the Middlebury Office of Public Safety (this must be done in person at 125 S. Main St., Middlebury). The card entitles the alumnus/a to use the Middlebury Fitness Center and Natatorium with one guest, borrow books from the Davis Family Library, and get discounts at the Middlebury Snow Bowl and Golf course;
- access JSTOR, a digital archive of thousands of academic journals and one million primary sources in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences (note that current journal content in JSTOR is excluded from alumni access), as well as Project Muse, a resource with hundreds of scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and mathematics from the 1990s to the present;
- access the MiddNetCareerCenter(www.middleburyonline.com), a searchable database of more than 7,400 Middlebury alumni and parents who offer career advice, as well as of job postings. In addition, the Center for Careers and Internships has many resources to help alumni with their job searches (http://www.middlebury.edu/studentlife/cci/alumni).
Keeping in Touch
We encourage alumni to keep in touch with the Bread Loaf community. To that end, we maintain an active Facebook page for both Bread Loaf (www.facebook.com/BreadLoafSchoolofEnglish) and the Bread Loaf Teacher Network (www.facebook.com/BreadLoafTeacherNetwork), where visitors can find updates on the program and connect with fellow alumni and students. The Middlebury Alumni Office sends e-mails announcements of regional and city alumni gatherings. The Bread Loaf School of English Newsletter, produced in the fall and spring, is sent to all alumni and posted on the Bread Loaf website at http://www.middlebury.edu/blse/news/Newsletters. Alumni are always welcome to share recent publications, conferences, awards, and other noteworthy news to be included in the newsletter and online; please contact Dana Olsen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your accomplishments.
