Library & Digital Resources

Heartland AEA provides instructional materials and resources to support PK-12 classroom instruction and school improvement. We offer support to schools in a variety of formats.

Library Collection

PK-12 educators and students will find they keep coming back for more of the instructional materials and library books provided by Heartland AEA. Educators can search the online catalog for resources or call and talk to a library staff member about what type of resources they need and the audience, reading, interest or grade level needed.

We have a robust print collection for…

  • Early readers
  • Second language learners
  • Struggling readers
  • On-target readers
  • High-interest, low vocabulary readers
  • Fiction and non-fiction readers
  • Professional learning literature and research

The Heartland AEA library is located in our Johnston Regional Education Center. Educators can stop by and check out items or call or email their requests. Materials can be delivered to schools via our van delivery service.

Digital Resources

All educators and students in our service area have access to no-cost digital resources such as Encyclopedia Britannica and BookFLIX. These digital resources were selected to best meet the varied needs and interests of students and educators. They reflect a broad range of topics to support desired student outcomes and educator professional learning.

The digital collection includes…

  • Audiobooks
  • Documents
  • Ebooks
  • Encyclopedias
  • Images and clipart
  • Magazine articles
  • Newspaper articles
  • Scholarly journals
  • Sound files
  • Streaming videos

There are three ways to access the digital resources:

AEA Scout

AEA Scout searches most of the digital resources at the same time. It also includes features such as note-taking, persistent links, read-aloud text, translation, font and screen changes. Students use their school email and password.

Heartland AEA OneClick

AEA OneClick is new for fall 2022! OneClick uses single sign-on (SSO) which makes it easier and more secure for students to log in to each of the digital resources using their school email and password.

Generic Username & Password

The generic school username/password approach is being phased out, but students can still log in to each resource with the generic school username/password.
