Libraries as Community Catalysts

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."

Student and Employee IDs

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:

 Form to request ID or clinical badge

then email it to lrc@coastalbend.edu. For more information about the uses of your ID go to:

 Cougar Card information (includes form)

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.

 

Have a great semester!!!
