Most Alabama users will be automatically authenticated (via IP authentication) and they will have access to AVL resources. You can find more information about AVL authentication by clicking here.
Physical Device Authentication
Some users may not be automatically IP authenticated when they access AVL. If these users are physically located in Alabama and IP authentication is not working for them, they can attempt to authenticate based on their device's physical location by clicking here.
If users are unable to automatically IP authenticate and if they are unable to authenticate based on their device's physical location, they will need to use an AVL account in order to access AVL resources. AVL accounts can be obtained by contacting your local public library. If you are a K-12/Post-Secondary student, please contact your school's library.
