    Staff Picks: Nice White Parents

    | by Mike Roy

    Hey, voracious readers! Library staff members are reviewing the best items in our collections* so that you can devour them, too. Read a 100-word Staff Pick then click on a handy link to get the book, article, video or podcast. Don’t stash away these treasures for later. Check them out now!
    The theme for this year’s Staff Picks is anti-racism, and in this post, Dean of the Library Mike Roy writes about Nice White Parents from the New York Times.

    * We are reviewing items in our collections and other content that is available for free to Midd students, faculty and staff!

    Old New Faces, or Facebook 50 Years Ago

    | by Kaitlin Buerge

    Have you ever wished that there was a directory - a book, perhaps, or a website - where you could search for your classmates by name in order to find out what they look like? A book of faces, maybe? Well, if you were a student between 1949 and 2008, Middlebury had your back.
