**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."
RETURNING STUDENTS CAN USE THE COUGAR photo ID THEY ALREADY HAVE. Once your ID is made it is good until you graduate. Be careful not to lose it.
IF YOU ARE A NEW STUDENT: Due to COVID safety precautions we are moving our in-person ID process online in Fall 2020! To get your Cougar ID copy and fill out this form:
then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the uses of your ID go to:
BankMobile mails your COUGAR credit CARD for financial aid disbursement to the mailing address you provided the College 2-4 weeks after your Cougar ID is made. They mail it in a green envelope. If you are staying in the dorms you should list that address for ID purposes.
If you have any questions about this process call 361-354-2737 Monday-Friday 8 am - 5 pm.

The mission of the Coastal Bend College Learning Resource Center 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.
