Vermont Online Library now available to anyone in Vermont

The Vermont Department of Libraries now provides access to the Vermont Online Library (VOL) to anyone accessing the internet from an IP address located in Vermont.

The VOL includes resources for school-age children, career explorers, automobile repair and maintenance from and much more from the Gale-Cengage family of resources. The Department of Libraries has taken on this expense so that public and academic libraries throughout the state can provide rich online resources to all of their patrons.

(Note that anyone traveling outside of Vermont who is not associated with an academic institution needs to arrange access to these resources, if possible, with their public library. These resources are incorporated into Middlebury’s library holdings; Middlebury students, faculty, and staff can access these from outside of Vermont by authentication through a link on a library website such as a search in Summon or through the library homepage.)

    This has the link for the public version of VOL. Our databases list has the link to our version that includes additional Gale resources we subscribe to. Can we have a link for both in the databases a-z list? goes to our version.
