The BLC WorldCat catalog is being updated. It will continue to display books and media owned by the UNH Library as well as over 10,000 libraries worldwide. However, it will no longer display results from individual Boston area libraries. Instead, books and media from Boston area libraries are now included under the worldwide level.

The request function is unchanged and as fast as ever. Items requested through Interlibrary Loan automatically go to the Boston Library Consortium for fulfillment – then, to libraries worldwide.
