Georgetown High School Yearbooks

Thanks to the Boston Public Library we now offer access to fully searchable digital versions of most Georgetown High School yearbooks, beginning in 1956 and running through 2014. Find them at the Internet Archive.

Commonwealth Catalog

For over 10 years, the Virtual Catalog has been the place for finding inter-library loan materials in Massachusetts. MVLC libraries have now migrated to a new system, The Commonwealth Catalog (ComCat).

ComCat has great new features including book jacket images and improved search options. With this new interface, you will be able to easily select your preferred format – hardcover, paperback, large print, audiobooks, and DVDs will appear together in your search results.

To log into the ComCat, you will need to know your library card barcode number.

If you are having trouble and need assistance with the Commonwealth Catalog, please contact us at 978-352-5728. We are happy to help!
