The Virtual Catalog is Moving

The Statewide Virtual Catalog is migrating to a new platform.

Many of the participating library systems in Massachusetts are scheduled to move to the new Commonwealth Catalog during the coming winter. This is a change from the anticipated September 2014 launch to ensure system stability.

The Commonwealth Catalog has great new features, including book jacket images and improved search options. You can easily select your preferred format for an item where available -- hardcover, paperback, large print, audiobooks, and DVDs will appear together in your search results.

During this interim period, libraries will begin leaving the old Virtual Catalog as they prepare for the transition to the Commonwealth Catalog. If you have trouble finding the title you need, please contact a local librarian and ask for assistance. Our libraries are still sharing -- the material is still out there, and your librarian can help you get what you need.

This Web site, and other programs of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, is funded in part with funds from the
Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal agency that fosters innovation, leadership and a lifetime of learning.
