|Our new SAILS WEB CAT contains information on the holdings of the Keeley Library as well as those of all libraries in SAILS (the South Eastern Automated Libraries) network. The online stations allow teachers and students to search for books, videorecordings, and other items in the Keeley Library and other libraries in SAILS. In addition to the materials owned by the Keeley Library, rs may borrow materials owned by other libraries in the SAILS network.||
SAILS WEB CAT...(continued)
Because the Keeley Library
is a full participating member in SAILS, teachers and students can place
a "Hold" on items in any of the other libraries; this is usually done at
the Circulation Desk. Placing a "Hold" on an item means that it will be
delivered to you at the Keeley Library in 3-4 days. This delivery service
is provided once a day by the Eastern Massachtts Regional Library System.
There are a number of SAILS
WEB CAT STATIONS
in the Reference Area
available for teachers and students. Magazine, newspaper, and some reference
articles can also be accessed online in all SEAL libraries. Articles can
be printed or emailed to your personal email account. Library staff
will be happy to assist in any way possible.
