Borrowing from BLC Libraries

Students, scholars and researchers affiliated with a Full Member of the Boston Library Consortium [BLC] can use the BLC Consortium Card to gain access to and borrow materials from the member libraries.  Consortium Cards are available to faculty, staff, and students of the BLC's academic institutions and to staff and patrons - on a limited basis - of the State Library of Massachusetts.

If you are affiliated with a BLC member institution, contact the information desk at your institution's main library for more information about obtaining a Consortium Card.

Using Government Documents at BLC Libraries

Thirteen of the BLC member libraries participate in the Federal Depository Library Program providing access to government documents and related information to the public. Details on accessing these collections is available here.
