Welcome to Oakland Unified School District Libraries.
The goal of the District is to provide a culturally relevant and resource rich school library for every student as well as support for librarians, teachers, and principals.
Click on your school library to view the resources available in their online catalogs. In addition, there are resource links for homework help, student research, and general enrichment. Use Encyclopedia Britannica, the premier standards based resource, for all of your informational needs and at the reading level you need. Enjoy the many new ebooks for K-12 we have added this year from Encyclopedia Britannica and Gale, as well as the 9-12 Gale Educational databases. All of these online resources are available to you from school or home twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. (ask your school librarian for the passwords that may be needed). There is a wealth of resources available to you here, whether you are a student, teacher, parent or private citizen.
