I attend school in Alabama, but I am outside of the state. How can I access AVL resources?

  • If your school provides you with a VPN, you can connect to your school's VPN and then attempt to access AVL resources. Connecting to the school's VPN should give you an IP address on your campuses network.
  • If you are a resident of Alabama and you are traveling outside of state, you can request an AVL account by contacting your local public library or the library at your school.
  • If you are not a resident of Alabama, but you attend classes through an Alabama school, you can contact the library at your school to request an AVL account.
  • If you need immediate access to AVL resources, please contact the 24/7 Help Desk at 1-800-338-8320 (toll-free) or 256-971-7448 (direct) to obtain temporary login credentials.
