Massachusetts Virtual Catalog

Announcement on the C/W MARS website: 
The Massachusetts Virtual Catalog links are now live!

After much work, all of our connections to the Massachusetts Virtual Catalog are now up and running! You can search state-wide for materials and can request them.

Important Information:
  • Please check availability of Items in the C/W MARS Catalog before using the Virtual Catalog. (The Virtual Catalog link location is shown in the image below.) Items that are available in C/W MARS libraries may not be requested.
  • All C/W MARS patrons with active library accounts may request materials from the Virtual Catalog.
  • You will be notified via email when an item is available for pickup.
  • Items may not be renewed.
  • Use the buttons provided by the Virtual Catalog interface for navigation.
  • Your local library can help you use the Virtual Catalog.
The Virtual Catalog system is being funded with state funds through a series of grants from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. If you aren't sure how to use the Virtual Catalog, here is a link to Frequently Asked Questions and a tutorial.
