The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives is partnering with KYVL to provide access to Ancestry Library Edition through March 2021.
Ancestry Library Edition brings the world’s most popular consumer online genealogy resource to your library, delivering billions of records in census data, vital records, directories, photos, and more. It’s an unprecedented online collection of individuals from North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and more.
Ancestry Library Edition is available remotely through December 2021. Ancestry Library Edition was an onsite-only resource according to our contract. We have member IP addresses on file at ProQuest and they do the authentication. Certain member types were allowed remote access.
Temporarily, ProQuest has turned on the remote access so KYVL members can use ALE away from their library's physical locations. BUT, everyone will still need to login to KYVL with their ID and password. This is the only way to secure the access so it’s not open globally and violating our contract.
