Electronic Resource & Database Access

There will be no off-campus access to Library electronic resources and databases this Friday, November 28 from 6-10pm. Library buildings are also closed for the Thanksgiving holiday during that time.

Learning Resources Display Center (LRDC)

The Curriculum Lab serves as one of 25 display centers in California for state-adopted textbooks and instructional materials (grades K-8). Known as the Learning Resources Display Center (LRDC), this collection allows educators in Santa Barbara County to preview instructional materials submitted for state adoption and to view those resources that have been adopted by the California State Board of Education. Since the Curriculum Lab is bound by legal contract to have these materials on display, items in the LRDC do not circulate unless there is more than one copy. The following links provide further information on California state adoptions.

  • California Curriculum & Instruction:  Official adoption information provided by the California Department of Education. Lists current state-adopted programs and prices, and links to the California frameworks in all subject areas.
  • California Education:  Links to California Department of Education standards, frameworks, and other publications.
