Welcome! This LibGuide is a collection of Brazosport College Library resources available to Brazosport College (BC) Small Business Development Center (SBDC) staff and employees as a quick-reference guide of ways in which we may assist you. The intention of this resource is to highlight items within our existing collection of databases, books, eBooks, business trade journals, and magazines written in the context and entrepreneurial spirit of developing your own small business.
This guide will continue to be updated. For the most recent SBDC updates and information, please refer to the Small Business Development Center webpage hosted by the University of Houston Bauer College of Business.
Access to Library Resources
The Brazosport College Library is open to our community meaning anyone can come into the library during operating hours (see heading on the left titled BC Library Hours) and access library resources. Material checkout and off campus access to e-resources is available to BC students and faculty/staff. Should someone not in this category want material checkout privileges, said person can obtain a Non-Student ID. This patron is not currently enrolled in college classes or employed by BC and desires the privilege of checking out library materials. An application must be completed and approved by library staff. The applicant must be 18 years of age, currently employed or supply two local references and live within the service area of the college. There is a $5.00 fee for a year’s privileges. The card must be renewed each year. This patron is limited to two (2) items at one time. Service area includes Sweeny, Brazosport, Columbia/Brazoria, Damon and Angleton Independent School Districts.
