Founded in 2017, HELM (Higher Education Libraries of Massachusetts) is an association of Massachusetts college libraries in public higher education. HELM libraries are also members of the Fenway Library Organization (FLO), a consortium of academic and special libraries in Massachusetts. FLO provides library support and hosts the HELM catalog.
HELM member libraries remain committed to instructional continuity during the COVID-19 crisis, and are working individually and collaboratively to ensure the highest level of access and services at each of our colleges. The HELM Executive Board stands with Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and MCCLPHEI in strongly recommending that all institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth follow the guidance of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) to close all libraries and cease all in-person services in response to the COVID-19 crisis. For more information, see the statement from the MBLC from March 20, 2020.
