About MaineCAT

MaineCat Statewide Catalog combines and links more than 100 library collections contained in 10 large online library systems.  A single search scans more than 3,400,000 unique titles and nearly 7.6 million items.

The Liberty Library is not part of MaineCAT. Patrons cannot use the built-in requesting and transaction management system to make online interlibrary loan requests.  However, you can use MaineCAT to locate an item and request it from library staff through interlibrary loan (ILL). The item will be mailed to the library, and we will call or email you when it is available to be picked up.

When you make an ILL request, we ask that you pay a interlibrary loan fee of $3.00 to defray the cost of the postage for this service. 

In MaineCat, you can search by Keyword, Author, Title, and many other access points.  The database is constantly and automatically updated to show new additions to the linked collections, and the current circulation status of each item.
