The Alabama Virtual Library (AVL) is managed by a governing council consisting of representatives from the following state agencies; the Alabama Commission on Higher Education, the Alabama Community College System, the Alabama Public Library Service, the Alabama State Department of Education, and the Alabama Supercomputer Authority.
The director of each participating state agency shall appoint three Council members to serve as representatives and advocates for the AVL. Each appointment is made for a three-year term. Initial appointments to the Council may have varying lengths of service to allow staggered rotation and terms of service.
The AVL Council meets regularly every other month and the public is invited to attend. Click here for more information on AVL Council Meetings. The Council adheres to a set of Bylaws that are fully reviewed for revisions or additions at least every three years. Click here to read the current AVL Council Bylaws.
