Because KYVL databases are limited to Kentucky citizens, KYVL must have some way to confirm your residency. The easiest way for many Kentuckians to get access is to KYVL through their local public library.
Many large public libraries provide access to KYVL databases, as well as additional resources, to anyone with a library card. To find out if your library provides this type of access, follow these instructions:
While the instructions above will work with many public libraries in Kentucky, there are still several libraries that will simply link to the KYVL website, where you will be required to enter a specific KYVL-created login. In this case, you will need to contact the library directly to obtain a username and password. Find your public library's phone number or web site URL by searching the Kentucky Public Library Directory.
You can find additional information and guidance under Accessing KYVL.
If you have an email account associated with a KYVL member library, school or district, you may request a KYVL password directly from KYVL by using the Password Request Form.
