About Us

Founded in 1970, the Boston Library Consortium (BLC) focuses on resource sharing, professional development, collaboration and advocacy among 19 public and private universities, liberal arts colleges, special research libraries, and one state library in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.

In addition to the BLC's commitment to providing high-quality and cost-effective sharing of print and digital content, the consortium serves as a forum for a wide range of library practice areas and an incubator for projects and initiatives relevant to academic and research libraries across New England.
