Off campus, a Placentia Public Library card number is needed for access to these resources. You may apply online for a virtual card (e-card) for online resources. However, if you get an e-card from the Anaheim library, you cannot get it from the Placentia library, or vice versa.
Online content from Encyclopaedia Britannica, ProQuest research databases, and TeachingBooks.net are available below. Passwords may be needed off campus. Please visit the EHS library with any questions.
These three databases are provided for all California students from the California State Library.
