Info for Senior 2s re: Plan submission and personal Plan copies

Congratulations, Senior 2s!

Guidelines for handing in print and digital copies of your plan to the Registrar are here:

Plan of Concentration Submission Guidelines (Registrar)

Want a bound copy of your plan mailed to you later this summer, compliments of Town Meeting? Instructions for how to get one, as well as copyright information about your plan, can be found here:

Personal Copies of Plan/Plan Copyright (Library)

(Spoiler: to get a personal copy sent to you, just give an extra copy to the Registrar along with an address to which it can be mailed in late summer/early fall.)

Please remember to return all library materials by this coming Wednesday, May 11. (Not sure what you still have out? Log in and see!)

If you’ll be living in the area after Commencement, you can get an alumni borrower account at that time — but you need to clear your account (i.e., bring everything back or pay any outstanding fines/replacement costs) first.

With all the best wishes for your post-Marlboro adventures,
Emily Alling
Library Director


Library end-of-semester deadlines and hours, May 2011

Congratulations to everyone for finishing up another semester, and special congratulations to our graduates! We will miss you, and we wish you all the best in your lives after Marlboro.

Here’s what you need to know regarding library deadlines and services as the semester ends.

  • All Marlboro College library materials are due back no later than Wednesday, May 11. To view your Marlboro library account, just log in here: 
  • If you are planning to return to campus in the fall, you may renew materials over the summer by logging into your account in the library catalog. Caveat: if another borrower needs an item that is checked out to you over the summer, you will need to return it within 10 days (by mail, if necessary). Full circulation policy:
  • The final due date for books borrowed from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan is also May 11 (if not sooner — check the label on the front of the book).
  • All personal belongings should be removed from the library by 9:00 am on Thursday, May 12. On Thursday, library staff will be clearing the building, scanning and reshelving all library books, and placing any and all personal items in Lost and Found.
  • The library building will remain open through Commencement and will close and lock at 5:30 pm on Sunday, May 15. If you come to the library after that time to return materials, please use the return bin that will be located outside the entrance to the new (Aron) wing of the library.
