BiblioBoard Library

All resources in BiblioBoard library are immediately available for unlimited simultaneous use (no holds!)   BiblioBoard Library consists of a set of smaller collections:
• BiblioBoard Access contains international resources and rare materials from smaller organizations that openly share their digital artifacts around the world.
• BiblioBoard Core is a historical database covering a wide range of topics—including Literature, Philosophy, History, Geography and Science in subject anthologies and over 14,000 full-text eBooks and over 24,000 pieces of primary source content.
• Indie Texas is a showcase of Texas independent and small press fiction and non-fiction authors.

Authentication is done via geolocation so patrons physically located in Fort Bend County will not be required to log-in.   However, creating a profile is highly recommended, so the resource can be accessed outside of the Fort Bend County and allows users t to save favorites, create bookmarks, add notes, and sync preference across devices. 

For users not physically located within Fort Bend County, a profile will need to be created.  Go to create a profile page and fill out the form. Then, if Fort Bend County Library doesn't show up, go to "Add / Remove Libraries" and add it. You will then be prompted to add your library barcode (no spaces).   This is the same profile also allows access to Pressbooks.
