For the first time in California academic history, all public and charter schools have free access to vetted databases for all of their students and teachers. This is a game changer for student-empowered learning, research skills, and equity. Participants will learn how to access the state-selected resources: 1. Proquest 2. Britannica, 3. TeachingBooks.

Learning Outcome #1
The participant will learn if their school district has signed up yet with the California State Library and the California Department of Education to access the state provided databases.

Learning Outcome #2
At the end of the session, the participants will have a general understanding of why the state provided these databases and the strengths of each one.
