A note about the CougarID and CBC employees: Although students will use their CougarID to access internet-based services, faculty and staff will use their email user name and password (without the @coastalbend.edu). If an employee brings a personal laptop to campus, he/she uses the email user name and the Social Security Number for the password (with no dashes). The WebCT username and password will be whatever was set up for use for the instructor by Student Services. An extended explanation is here.
Online Resources & Databases
The CBC Library pays for a variety of authoritative resources that are accessible from computers with internet access. All of the library online resources are available 24 hours per day, every day of the year from home or office on the Library Online Resources page.
The library pays for access to ebrary and NetLibrary, which are collections of full-text electronic books. These services provide access to the entire text of the books, from the cover to the last page. They are interactive, and the content of every book is searchable. View the ebooks page. The electronic book collections include over 60,000 titles, with very little overlap [compare to the library's print collection with 45,000 titles].
Scheduling Instruction: Please call your campus library or librarian to schedule a date and time for instruction in advance so that the librarians will be able to fully customize library instruction for your classroom needs.
Library Subscription Databases: the librarians are available to provide detailed instruction on each of the library subscription databases, either to faculty or to students.
Other classes: the librarians can provide instruction on information literacy, internet searching, plagiarism, and citing sources, either in class or
With the new online catalog, the library has the ability to maintain lists of New Titles. AN RSS feed of the New Titles is also available. View the Catalog page.
The library is using Del.icio.us (pronounced "delicious"), an online link-sharing service, to maintain links to free web resources. These links are organized by subject or topic and reviewed by library staff. Del.icio.us provides several unique features, including the ability to subscribe to updates for the site or individual subjects. If faculty have any recommended resources, please let us know and we will include them in the set.
This is a collection of tutorials that were either prepared by librarians or provided by vendors. They include PowerPoint presentations, multimedia presentations, and downloadable Adobe PDF files. Go to the Library Tutorials page.
