The purpose of the Network of Alabama Academic
Libraries (NAAL) is to coordinate academic library resource sharing to enhance
education and research. NAAL is an unincorporated consortium of the Alabama
Commission on Higher Education and Alabama’s eligible public and private
four-year colleges and universities. In addition, other research libraries not
affiliated with educational institutions may join as nonvoting cooperative
