Armstrong Science Library is a full service library, including a research librarian and circulation staff.
Library Hours for Winter Term
Computers, printers (including a color printer and a poster plotter), and video viewing stations.
Equipment, including laptops, graphing calculators, and mac adapters, are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk—you can see the full list on MIDCAT. (Note: during the COVID pandemic, Armstrong will not be circulating equipment. To borrow equipment from Davis Family Library, see go/equipment.)
Armstrong is also home to Middlebury’s Antique Instrument Collection, one of many physical specimen collections in Mccardell Bicentennial Hall (BiHall). The collection includes apparatus used in Middlebury laboratories from the early nineteenth century through mid-twentieth century.
Armstrong Library will be open for limited hours for winter-term, and will only be accessible to students enrolled in classes taking place in BiHall or in classes taught by departments housed in BiHall.
Parking is available for faculty, staff, students (T Permits), and visitors outside BiHall (S-lot). Visitors and guests coming to campus Monday - Friday between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. should display a Middlebury College parking permit to avoid being ticketed. Temporary parking permits may be obtained online at the parking portal.
In addition to comfortable seating, work tables, and study carrels, Armstrong Science Library has a groups study room for two to six people, two of which can be booked online. There is also a twelve station computer lab on the first floor.

Middlebury College sits on land which has served as a site of meeting and exchange among indigenous peoples since time immemorial. The Western Abenaki are the traditional caretakers of these Vermont lands and waters, which they call Ndakinna, or “homeland.” We remember their connection to this region and the hardships they continue to endure. We give thanks for the opportunity to share in the bounty of this place and to protect it.
