Resources for Web Editors

Communications and LIS put this page together to support our Web editors. If you have suggestions for additional links, please e-mail them to editor@middlebury.edu.

  • SiteImprove. This is a Web-based service that sends us a weekly report of broken links and spelling errors on the college website, broken down by department. Use of the service has helped us dramatically reduce the number of broken links on our site. If you don’t currently receive this and would like to, please send your request to the Help Desk: helpdesk@middlebury.edu.

The Middlebury College website is a critical communication platform for us, and one that requires all of our efforts if we are going to remain engaged in telling Middlebury’s story to all of our audiences.
