The Commonwealth Catalog is Back Online!

The Commonwealth Catalog is ready to resume lending and borrowing services on Monday, September 21st. MVLC patrons are welcome to resume requesting items from beyond MVLC libraries as you did before the pandemic.

All networks will be participating in this reopening except for FLO, UMass Amherst, and UMass Dartmouth. These non-participating networks have indicated they are willing to provide point-to-point ILL services if contacted directly by other libraries, until they are ready to resume ComCat service. Although most networks are resuming participation, not all libraries in those networks will be coming online on Monday and they ask for patience from the library community as all libraries work to resume services.

If you have any questions or any trouble with requests, please contact the Reference Desk at or 978-256-5521 x1211.
