Hi all,
I'm writing because I was helping an Answerland patron and tried to access OSLIS resources from the Libraries of Oregon website. Because of where I live, in NE Portland, it seems that the Libraries of Oregon website thinks I am in Vancouver. Here is the message: You are currently accessing the Libraries of Oregon portal from Vancouver, Washington, United States. Find your nearest library<https://librariesoforegon.org/libraries-by-city/Vancouver>

While I have the ability to log in using Answerland credentials and I know how to use my public library, I'm wondering if this is affecting any patrons. What is the work around? And does anyone know why the Internet thinks I'm in Vancouver?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
