About the Library

The principal responsibility of the Columbia Basin College Library is to provide information resources and services that advance the mission of the College. The library develops and integrates resources in a variety of formats, utilizing technologies that provide broad access to information in support of the curriculum of the college. The library provides research and instructional services to foster students' ability to think critically about their information needs and successfully apply information tools and resources to meet them. 

Current CBC students, faculty, faculty emeritus and staff may access library resources.


The library is unable to provide any course reserves or textbooks at this time. Check library eReserves to see if chapters of your textbooks are available online.

If you cannot afford your textbooks, please reach out to your instructors who can work with you to find alternative solutions.

If you need financial assistance, please visit the Money for You page, the Well-Being Resource page and the CBC Foundation.
