The Relay Library has many resources that might help you to be a better teacher. Most of the resources are electronic, and can be accessed at any time, from any place. The resources include books, articles, news videos, news articles, images and timelines you can use in K-12 classrooms, and more!

For help finding books and articles using the Relay library, click the "Finding Books and Articles" tab on the left! Sometimes, however, you find an article or a citation that seems to be exactly what you're looking for. How do you know if the library has access to it?
If you only have a citation, you can try searching for the book or article in the library by searching the exact title in the library search bar, or by looking up the journal in our list of journals and databases. You can click the link below for additional instructions, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help!
If you've checked and you're 100% sure this article just isn't available, all isn't lost! You can email us at email@example.com or fill out this form to request the article through Interlibrary Loan. We can help you track down a copy of an article or a book chapter for free!
Aside from the library's collection, you also have librarians who can help you any time of the day. If you email firstname.lastname@example.org, a Relay librarian will respond within one business day. You can also use our Ask a Librarian chat service (see below), and another librarian will be on call to help you 24/7.
