The library catalog searches all of the physical items in our collection (books, DVDs, seeds in our seed library, etc.), along with ebooks, audio books, and streaming video. It does not search individual articles.
We share our library catalog with 144 libraries in Central and Western Massachusetts. If there is something you are looking for that we don’t have, you can search the other libraries and have any material delivered to the GCC library free of charge. Simply use the “GCC Library” dropdown menu to select “All C/W MARS Libraries.”
Order books from UMASS Amherst and other Massachusetts libraries
If you cannot find the material you’d like from C/W MARS, you can search the Commonwealth Catalog, which consists of libraries across the state, including UMASS. Items ordered through the Commonwealth Catalog can be delivered to GCC free of charge.
If you still can’t find what you are looking for, we can order it for you from libraries outside of this network. Email a librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (413) 775 – 1831.
