Benefits of Membership

MassCat offers your library a completely Web-based system that includes circulation, simple cataloging (including a tool to search other sites for MARC records), ILL, acquisitions, and serials management.

If you’re unable to find a record already in the MassCat database, you can search several other library catalog sites using our integrated search tool.  If you fail to find a record at these other sites, you can make a request for a record from our cataloging center and we will search some licensed databases for a record or we will create a record for you!

Once you join MassCat, your library will be eligible to receive delivery service from the statewide courier service.  This will help facilitate easy sharing of items with other libraries that are members of the MassCat group and will greatly expand the offerings your library can make to your patrons.

Here’s a brief video outlining the basic benefits of membership in MassCat.
