students and not let us authenticate ourselves. I would really love

HI everyone. I thought this database resource was only for public schools,
do we know if private schools can also access it? Thanks.

Here's what I did to get access to the California State Library K-12
resources. FYI, if you already have Britannica, they will automatically
take care of it (you only have to pay for any additional content through
them, like ImageQuest).
Go to "How School Districts and Charter Schools Get Access" - within that
section is a link to a form you need to submit.
Thanks for your suggestions so far for other databases!

currently have CultureGrams, Trueflix, Britannica. Are there any others
you really love with K-5 in mind?
