" ... The California State Library, with help from the California Department of Education, has made available three online databases for every K–12 school in the state beginning this fall. There is no cost for this service to your school district.
Online content from Encyclopedia Britannica, ProQuest, and TeachingBooks.net will be available at school, at home, in libraries, and on mobile devices for students, teachers, and administrators. This service provides a massive digital library of books, scientific research, newspaper articles, photos, videos, and more—all aligned with the curriculum that California has created for its schools."
