I'm trying to look at textbooks in specific states at specific times - namely, Georgia, Texas, Colorado, Ohio, California, and Massachusetts in the 1980s and 1990s. I know several of these states have a list of books that is determined by the department of education, so theoretically I should be able to find these lists. Does anyone have any idea how? I've tried looking in bibliographies of other books about textbooks, but those don't say what states the books were used in, just what states they were published in, and also, don't provide all the books used. I've also tried googling for these lists, and I've managed to come up with the current lists, but not past lists. But this tells me that the lists exist somewhere... just not sure how to figure out where.

Well unfortunately the follow up is that I dropped out of my phd program, and never got ahold of any of those things.
