Cape and Islands Libraries Automated Materials Sharing Network
The Nantucket Atheneum is a member of the Cape and Islands Libraries Automated Materials Sharing Network, a non-profit, cooperative association of libraries on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket, that share resources through a computer network with terminals located in each member library and also through an online portal.
The Cape Libraries Automated Materials Sharing (CLAMS) is the shared catalog.
Use of a single CLAMS library card allows patrons to borrow books and other materials from all member libraries. The shared system gives library card holders access to over 1.6 million items including books, magazines, and non-print resources.
