Most institutions of higher education in Kentucky link to KYVL databases through their library web pages, allowing students, faculty and staff to log in off campus using institutional login credentials.
Access is also available directly from www.kyvl.org. Please contact the library at your academic institution for your institution's username and password or complete KYVL's password request form using an email address associated with a participating institution, such as firstname.lastname@example.org.
To request a password, complete KYVL's password request form using your school email address. Login credentials can be used all year long, including over summer break. During the school year, username and password can also be requested from your library media specialist.
Students in districts that do not participate may register as borrowers with their participating public library to obtain KYVL login credentials for use outside of school hours. Access to KYVL resources is not available on school networks for non-member districts.
Please contact your participating local public library for a password that allows access to KYVL databases from home. A directory of public libraries is available through the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives.
Please contact your participating institutional library for your KYVL username and password. If you have an email account associated with a KYVL member institution, you may request a password directly from KYVL through KYVL's password request form.
If you are unable to obtain login information from your home library, KYVL can provide login information through our password request form to an email address associated with a participating library. Please note that KYVL usernames and passwords cannot be sent to an unverifiable email address and KYVL staff cannot give out login information over the phone.
