Massachusetts Residents Now Have Borrowing Privileges From UMass Amherst Libraries, Select Materials Online and Pick Up at Local Library

From UMass Amherst Libraries:

Massachusetts residents can now check out resources from the UMass Amherst Libraries online and pick them up at their local library. With the advent of the Commonwealth Catalog all Bay State residents can borrow materials from the largest public research library in New England, directly through their local library.

New libraries and networks are being added all the time, check with your local library to see if they are part of Commonwealth Catalog.

The UMass Amherst Libraries are a proud partner in the Commonwealth Catalog and are happy to make this new borrowing privilege available.
