Additional SLED Databases
Can't Get into a Database?
If you get a page with "SLED Databases" at the top and an ask for username and password, read on!
If you're an Alaska resident with an Alaskan area code, call 1-800-440-2919 for a password. Note that this may not work if caller ID is disabled, as apparently the system can't tell that you're calling from Alaska. Otherwise, Alaska residents can fill out our form to receive a password.
Fill out the form completely so we can verify your Alaska residency. We must do this for our vendors.
