Using Other Local Libraries

Lesley students, faculty, and staff may also access materials from other libraries.

Fenway Library Organization Catalog

Lesley University Library is full member of the Fenway Library Organization, a Boston-based library consortium. Using the Fenway Library Organization (FLO) Catalog, you can find items held at other full member libraries and have books delivered to either Sherrill or Moriarty Library.

For example, to have a copy of Lord of the Rings delivered to Sherrill Library from the Wentworth Institute of Technology, you would go through the following steps:(1) select "Make a Request" from the record; (2) login using your Lesley ID number or the barcode on the back of your Lesley ID; (3) select "Request from Other Library"; (4) choose the pickup location and click "Submit." It will take between four and seven days for the book to arrive. Contact the Circulation Desk for more information.

Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat)

Use the Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat) to search for items that are not available at Lesley University Library or one of the FLO member libraries. This provides you with a place to search for books in all participating Massachusetts libraries.

To request an item from another library be delivered to either Sherrill or Moriarty Library: (1) Login using the barcode from your Lesley ID; (2) search for an item and select the quot;Request this Itemquot; button; (3) choose where you want the book delivered. You can check the status of your request by logging into your ComCat account.

Boston Public Library (BPL)

Lesley community members who work, own property, or live (even temporarily, as a student) in Massachusetts are eligible to borrow materials from the Boston Public Library.

Online registration affords you access to some of BPL's e-resources, and you may upgrade your privileges to borrow physical materials and access all databases if you appear in person with proof of your eligibility.

Visit the BPL website for more information about borrowing. You can also call 617-536-5400, or email
