Interlibrary Loan Services
The Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat) allows library users to locate and request library materials from all across the state, and have them delivered directly to their home library. No need for mediated interlibrary loan. ComCat has a modern and easy-to-use interface, including book jacket images and improved search options. Users can easily select their preferred format for an item when multiple choices are available. Hardcover, paperback, large print, audiobooks, and DVDs will appear together in search results.
If your item cannot be located in the Commonwealth Catalog, our staff can try to obtain it for you through Inter-Library Loan (ILL). This system allows library staff to obtain materials from libraries located all across the country! We will use Worldcat to locate a copy of the item you are looking for and then send a request through our mediated ill system. You must have a Yarmouth library card to place an ILL request. Generally speaking, requests for newly published items and Reference materials will not be filled via ILL. After a request is approved, it may take one or two weeks for the item to arrive.
There is no charge for Interlibrary Loan, but it does require a valid CLAMS card. Contact the South or West Yarmouth Library
