Access to Licensed Electronic Resources
Access to the Libraries' commercial databases and full-text resources is restricted to currently enrolled students, employees, and retirees of The University of Alabama. If you are a student, a member of the faculty or staff, or a retiree and do not have access, please contact Millie Jackson, Associate Dean for Research & Instruction for more information. All faculty, including adjuncts and formal visiting appointments (e.g., Visiting Professor, Visiting Scientist) should ensure that their employing departments have input a record for them into the University's Banner system and coded the record for access to campus resources.
Users accessing this site by means of an independent Internet Service Provider will be required to log in with their Bama Account username and password before accessing the database.
Items marked AVL are available to citizens of Alabama who have an Alabama Virtual Library Card from their public library. Alabama citizens who are not members of the University of Alabama community should access AVL resources at: http://www.avl.lib.al.us/
If technical difficulties connecting to the Libraries' resources occur after a department has created a Banner record for a faculty member or a student is enrolled and attending, the problem should be reported to the Office of Library Technology.
