The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) are partnering to provide all state residents with free access to the Kentucky Virtual Library during the upcoming school year.

The virtual library is a consortium of nearly 300 libraries and institutions across the state, including colleges and universities, public libraries, K-12 schools and hospitals.

The virtual library offers more than 60 research databases and resources for users of all levels. This year, KDLA support allowed it to offer Ancestry Library Edition throughout Kentucky, and KDLA will continue to support access to Ancestry in the year ahead.
