**Please keep in mind:
On October 2, 2019, OCLC President and CEO, Skip Prichard, who was speaking about libraries' future leadership in changing communities noted that: "Libraries contribute, developing unique offerings that help make them indispensable. Through those contributions, they forge connections. Catalysts create, introducing big changes and little shifts. They compete, constantly pushing themselves forward. And ultimately they choose, from all the goals that they can pursue, the ones most important to their communities."

The mission of the Coastal Bend College Library System is to support the college curriculum by providing diverse educational resources in all formats to support and supplement course content. Librarians select resources to help our students successfully complete their assignments, teach individuals and scheduled classes how to effectively conduct research and guide patrons in the development of critical thinking skills to ensure their success in the global marketplace. In addition, we provide general materials to stimulate the interests of a diverse student and public population to promote life-long learning.
