  • In addition, RCC library belongs to the Fenway Libraries Organization (FLO). FLO is a consortium of twenty three academic and special libraries in Massachusetts. Membership allows all members of the RCC community to free access and borrowing rights at all of these academic institutions.

Other Library Catalogs

  • If you cannot find the book you need in the RCC Library, try the Boston Public Library or another community college or state college library. All state residents may borrow from the Boston Public Library. You can use your RCC ID to borrow from any state run college library. Here is a list of Other Library Catalogs.

ComCat is the state run catalog that lets you log in and place holds on books from libraries all across the state. From the website: "With access to millions of titles, the Commonwealth Catalog extends your library’s reach to all participating libraries throughout Massachusetts, with convenient pick-up at your local library." You should use ComCat after you have checked the RCC library.
