The STCC Library is a member of various consortia, and because of this, STCC students have access to a number of libraries in the Western and Central Massachusetts area.
STCC Library is a part of C/W MARS, a consortium of public and academic libraries in Central and Western Massachusetts. Members of the consortium may request items from other member libraries easily through C/W MARS' shared library management system. STCC Library's partnership with C/W MARS will end on June 1st 2020.
STCC Library is part of CLGS, a consortium of public and academic libraries located in the Greater Springfield area. By reciprocal agreements, a STCC library card will be honored at the Cooperating Libraries of Greater Springfield. These libraries include: American International College, Bay Path College, Elms College, Holyoke Community College, the Springfield City Library, Springfield College, the Western New England University Library & Law Library, and Westfield State College. Library card holders from these institutions also have borrowing privileges at STCC Library. For more information about these libraries and STCC Library patron borrowing priveleges, please visit:
In June 2020, the STCC Library will become a member of the HELM consortium. New resources from other community college libraries in Massachusetts will be available this summer!
