El Portal - New Web Portal

In case you haven’t heard, any New Mexico resident now has free 24/7 access to popular electronic resource tools using “El Portal,” the State Library’s new one-stop web page portal. El Portal’s user-friendly access is available from any online connection - from home, work, school, the library, and portable devices such as smart phones. 

Thanks to technology called Geo-IP authentication, it checks the IP address of the device used to access the resources and compares it to a database of all IPs known to originate within New Mexico.  Once an IP address is validated as an IP address within New Mexico, El Portal’s online resources can be accessed without being asked for any logon or password.
