MaineCat requesting is now available.

The exchange of books between libraries across the state of Maine has restarted. In CBBcat, click on the MaineCat link as in the past.



Once in the MaineCat catalog, select the title you would like to request.



From there, click on the “Request This Item” option. You will be prompted to select Bates College as your home library and log in with your Bates credentials.



When the book has arrived, it will be placed in the library vestibule for pick up. Due to the disruption in open hours at libraries throughout the state, turn around times may vary. We appreciate your patience.
