Here you will find magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias, websites, databases, links to local resources, and more.
The databases are for the most part subscription resources purchased by the library. They may be accessed from within the library without a library card. All databases can also be accessed from home, but most require a Santa Cruz library card and a PIN.
The websites have been selected by librarians at SCPL, and are recommended based on their quality, accuracy, and usability.
These resources are arranged by subject category, but you may also search for a specific topic using the Search Box.
