About the Administrator Resource Library

Your Benchmark Universe Resource Library consists of a series of resources and materials organized by program or series. The resources you have access to are determined by your district and/or school’s subscriptions.

You can use the library to filter, search, view, and customize book titles. Use the School and District Customization bookshelves to share your favorite eBook customizations with your colleagues. You can also add materials to bookshelves and assignments or do book reviews, all in one place!

The different libraries have the same functionality but offer a few unique characteristics, such as filter types. Use the library-specific filters on the filter panel to get the materials you want. Materials are organized in your libraries based on the program and filters selected.
