Virtual Catalog Migration
The Road to The Commonwealth Catalog!
For over 10 years the Virtual Catalog has been the place for finding library materials in Massachusetts. Now it is time for a new system. Throughout the coming year the Massachusetts state-wide ILL system, currently known as the Virtual Catalog, will be migrating to a new system and getting a new name, The Commonwealth Catalog.
In the coming months all networks will be migrating from the Virtual to the Commonwealth Catalog. This migration process will take place throughout the year and include a gradual 'draw down' of the Virtual Catalog as networks are migrated, one-by-one to the new system.
