Santa Barbara, Calif. (March 31, 2015) – ABC-CLIO Solutions, an award-winning digital curriculum resource, is providing complimentary access to its 15 online databases in April to celebrate School Library Month. All resources will be open to the public through April 30, 2015.

“Libraries and the resources they provide for educators and students foster a deep level of personal and academic growth in and out of the classroom,” said Becky Snyder, ABC-CLIO President. “By offering open access to all of our digital resources, we’re carrying on a proud tradition that continues to transform education through strong library programs in our schools.”

Students and educators will have full access to ABC-CLIO’s collection of online textbooks and databases that can be used for instruction on subjects, such as social studies, the language arts, and science. The digital resources offer more than 1 million primary sources and images, providing a guide for students as they explore key historical moments and develop critical thinking skills through primary source analysis, persuasive writing, and argumentation. Through online multimedia content, ABC-CLIO Solutions also helps facilitate flipped and blended learning environments and differentiated instruction through many customizable instruction activities for students and teachers.

April is also designated as Genocide Awareness & Prevention Month, and educators and students will have access to Modern Genocide: Understanding Causes and Consequences. This award-winning online textbook serves as a full, rich, and comprehensive resource vetted by a group of well-known, prominent individuals who make up its advisory board to ensure definitive expertise on the sensitive and complex subject of genocide. Users have complimentary access to in-depth coverage of the ten most significant genocides in modern history and features to help guide students and teachers through this sensitive topic. The database fosters reflective discussions and assignments while meeting the academic curriculum and standards of many history and social studies courses.

“Teaching students about genocide is a challenging task for many educators, but necessary in ensuring students understand the price of prejudice and racism in today’s society,” Snyder said. “By opening our genocide resources and presenting a variety of authoritative perspectives, we’re making it easier for educators to discuss this complex subject material.”

To date, New Hampshire, Minnesota, California, and Texas have passed legislation to dedicate April for genocide awareness in order to educate the public and prevent future atrocities.
