Databases

The Alabama Virtual Library (AVL) website and databases will be inaccessible Monday, January 30 due to scheduled server maintenance.

All databases are available in every branch of the Birmingham Public Library, unless otherwise noted. A JCLC library card can be used to access many of the databases, however licensing restrictions force us to limit access to certain databases to residents of Birmingham.
