The Commonwealth Catalog is coming!

“One Search. All Stacks.”

The Nevins Library is pleased to announce that later this week we will be participating in the Statewide Commonwealth Catalog System.  In addition to the current Merrimack Valley Library Consortium Catalog, you will be able to search for books throughout the state of Massachusetts.  Our patrons can find all kinds of materials from books to audiobooks to DVD’s and more.  This new interface is easy to use and only requires a valid Massachusetts library card.  The new Commonwealth Catalog is meant to replace the Virtual Catalog, so those who have used VC in the past are encouraged to switch to the new system to access materials not available in our local library consortia.

If you conduct a search in our MVLC Catalog and the item is not available in the consortium, you will get a message on the search screen suggesting you try the Commonwealth Catalog with a link to its portal.

For more information or help in using the Commonwealth Catalog, contact the Reference Department at  978 686-4080 x12.
