California State Library Resources

California's K-12 Online Content Project

California is now offering, at no cost to local schools, districts or students, three online databases for use by every K-12 school and student in the state, with access starting at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.

Online content from Encyclopedia Britannica, ProQuest and TeachingBooks.net will be available individually to all K-12 students in California, as well as all public schools in the state.

These content resources, commonly referred to as "library databases," provide teachers, school librarians and students with a massive amount of digital information: books, scientific research, newspaper articles, photos, videos and more – all aligned with the curriculum that California has created for its schools.
