The Commonwealth Catalog

The Commonwealth Catalog extends the resources available to library patrons through CLAMS.   Formerly called the Virtual catalog, it includes  books, DVDs, and music from additional participating Massachusetts libraries. Requested materials will be delivered to your local library for pickup.  There are two ways to access the catalog.  Both methods require a valid library card number and PIN/Password to log in.

Direct login:
Commonwealth Catalog
This method pre-selects the Woods Hole Public Library, meaning requested material will be delivered here.

Through CLAMS:
CLAMS has added a link to the Commonwealth Catalog under “Browse other catalogs.” Accessing the site this way requires patrons to select their library from a drop down menu.


 The Commonwealth eBooks Collection

Massachusetts residents with a library card number and PIN can access digital content for free. A search will include  results from resources from the vendors that  are current partners: Axis360, EBL, and Biblioboard.  Simply click to download your request. Depending on the device you are using you may be required to download an app or other reader.
