We have withdrawn the VHS Tapes from the library. It was time. They are now on the Book Sale Shelf (the shelves that make up the Pratt Computer Lab wall). Everything is first come, first serve and there’s some great stuff there if you still have a VCR. The book sale policy is come, fill your backpacks, boxes, etc. and leave a donation you feel is appropriate.
All of these books have been tagged with the tag seen in parentheses above and information about the award can be found in the comments of each item. Click on “Tag Cloud” (under the search box) in the catalog and select the tag for the titles you want to see. Enjoy!
Goddard experienced an issue with our Google Apps accounts recently (around 9:45am on 3/29/2012).
The issues have been corrected for all users except those whose password is less than 8 characters. If your password is less than 8 characters you will need to go to http://activate.goddard.edu and change your password. You will use your six-digit ID as your username and your current password.
This will change your password universally for Goddard systems.
June 13th 2012 marks a note-worthy anniversary in the history of Goddard College. It is the centennial of the unveiling of a bronze memorial tablet dedicated to William Rollin Shipman, a Vermonter born on a farm in Granville, Vermont in 1836.

We have a new exhibit on the history of the college, entitled: The History of Goddard College Exhibit, 1969-1979
By 1970 Goddard College had become known for being a radical institution and was seen as being part of the countercultural movement. The country was in a state of cultural upheaval and the youth were increasingly becoming disenchanted with authority and the status quo. Goddard was able to appeal to this new generation through its educational philosophy which is inherently anti-establishment and action oriented. Goddard’s focus on the learning by doing method of education was appealing to students who were already engaged in efforts to create social change as a way to receive academic credit for meaningful work done outside of the classroom.
