Usage of the Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat) has increased steadily since it went live for patrons on April 1, 2015. ComCat now includes six library networks: Bridgewater State University, Cape Libraries Automated Materials Sharing (CLAMS), Fenway Libraries Online (FLO), Minuteman Library Network (MLN), Old Colony Library Network (OCLN), and the SAILS Library Network. The ILL management system has over 4600 registered patrons and earlier this month recorded its 10,000th request. Sounds like our patrons are really jumping into their summer reading!
The collection will continue to grow in variety and size as other institutions and networks prepare to join later this summer and fall. UMass Amherst is up next. If you are a FLO patron and haven’t yet tried placing a request in the Commonwealth Catalog, click the link to get started.
