The Reference Staff is pleased to offer proctoring services for online classes. Just contact us at the 508-699-0122 or email illna@sailsinc.org and we can work out a good time. If the test needs to be taken on computer we set you up. Otherwise you can sit in the Reference Area or in the back office to take the test. We do the proctoring in the Reference Area so we cannot guarantee quiet. The service is free.

Commonwealth Catalog is available for everyone through Enterprise. There is the ability to search by subject, select format, see the covers (of some items) and get a full bibliographic record.

Also, new books, dvds and cds (6 months old or less) usually won't be sent so that each library system gives their patrons a chance first.
