Armstrong Science Library is a full service library, including a research librarian and circulation staff.

Computers, printers (including a color printer and a poster plotter), video viewing stations, and microfilm and microfiche reader/printers are available.

Equipment, including laptops, graphing calculators, and mac adapters, are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk—you can see the full list on MIDCAT.

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 open at 10 AM on Tuesday, September 8, 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.
