Librarians & Library Staff

Any faculty/staff member affiliated with a VALE member library can request a user account. With a VALE user account you will be able:

  • to register for the annual users' conference and workshops;
  • to post comments to the VALE website;
  • to join VALE Committee(s).

An official work or school email address is required to create an account, and approval will be sent if/when your account has been confirmed.


If you are a student at Essex County College, Thomas Edison State College, or another New Jersey institution, and seeking access to databases and research tools, DO NOT COMPLETE THIS FORM.

VALE is not a library, but a consortium of libraries in New Jersey and all access to databases and resources is offered through your individual college or university library. Please contact your institution for assistance.

To ensure proper delivery of VALE email messages, please add "" to your email address book.
