Negotiations to renew UVM's ScienceDirect contract have failed, as Elsevier has come nowhere close to offering a price we can afford. The UVM Libraries remain committed to obtaining any Elsevier articles you need. Interlibrary Loan will fill without charge every request you send us.

From the Archives: On January 14, 1927, UVM dedicated its new chapel, named for university founder Ira Allen. Funded by benefactor James B. Wilbur and designed by architects McKim, Mead and White, the chapel was big enough to hold all of the student body at that time. The dedication included two recitals featuring the chapel's Welte-Mignon Philharmonic Pipe Organ. #pipeorgans #mckimmeadwhite #uvm #uvmlibraries #librariesofinstagram
