Requesting materials from other libraries:
    Shea Library shares materials with many Central and Western Massachusetts libraries. If there is an item you wish to borrow in one of these libraries, click the link which says "Place Hold".
    If you are not logged in yet, the system will prompt you to do so (please see above for instructions on logging in).
    On the next screen, please leave pickup location as "AIC Shea Library" and click submit. You should then get a screen which says "Hold was successfully placed".
    When your item arrives, you will get an email from informing you that it is here and available for pickup. You must pick up the item within one week.
