From the California State Library Press Release – California to Provide Statewide K-12 Online Content for Schools (PDF)

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 beginning this fall.

Online content from Encyclopedia Britannica, ProQuest and TeachingBooks.net will be available – at school, at home, in libraries, on laptops, on phones — to all K -12 educators, students, librarians and administrators in the state.

“It’s a simple idea: Help more California school kids succeed by being able to find more reliable information more easily where they look for it the most – online,” said Greg Lucas, California’s State Librarian. These content resources commonly referred to as “library databases” provide teachers and students with a massive online library of books, scientific research, newspaper articles, photos, videos and more — all aligned with the curriculum that California has created for its schools.

The state Department of Education estimates that roughly half of the state’s 1,000 school districts do not provide library databases and other online content to encourage and assist their students. Those districts with subscriptions pay for them out of their own operating budgets.  Starting in the 2018-19 school year, all school districts in California are welcome to use these online resources, with the contracts paid at the state level.

Technical Sign-Up for District Access in 2018-19:

Technical experts at school districts, county offices, and other educational networks in California should provide implementation information at www.TeachingBooks.net/CASetup

TeachingBooks is coordinating the collection of set up information for all three vendors. Detailed information is expected for this form, including IP addresses, email domains, remote access information, and other technical questions. Completing this setup information using the form is the first step to have access at the district or county level.

California State Library Mailing List

The California State Library will provide updates about this project, other K-12 online educational resources and opportunities for technical support. Interested teachers, staff, librarians, parents and others are invited to join the State Library’s mailing list for K-12 education – InfoList for California K-12 Online Resources (aka databases)

General questions about the K-12 Online Content project can be directed to Mary Beth Barber, Special Projects and Assistant to the State Librarian, at 916-323-9758 or Marybeth.barber@library.ca.gov

This survey is critical in collecting the data that make it possible to improve school libraries throughout the state. Without the data it’s extremely difficult to advocate for school libraries.

Check with your local school districts to see if they are filling it out.
