The Learning Resources Display Center (LRDC) houses copies of textbooks that have been either adopted or are under review by the California Department of Education (CDE) for all subject areas in Grades K-8.  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.

Materials do not circulate unless there is more than one copy. 

The Learning Resource Display Center (LRDC) is located in Room 2589, and is accessible during ​UCSB Library-Public Hours.
