  2. IMPORTANT TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION: IF THE LINK TAKES YOU TO THE ALUMNI HOMEPAGE, YOU NEED TO LOG OUT OF COASTAL CONNECT. Click the "Log out" link on the left side of the page, below the “Make a Gift” button. Then return to this page, and click the link for the Date and Time you wish to attend.

  7. Problems? Questions? Scheduling conflicts? Please email

You will not be able to sign up for any training that already has reached the maximum number of registrations allowed. (Typically 50 for classroom sessions, and 16 for Training Lab sessions.) That training may open up again later if someone cancels. Please show courtesy for your colleagues: Sign up for only one session. If you need to change your registration, please cancel your previous registration. If you have any trouble cancelling your previous registration, please sign up for the session you need, then email, requesting that we cancel your previous registration. Be sure to include the date and time of the registration you wish to cancel. 


Please note that those sessions marked as "Training Lab" sessions are for the benefit of those students without a working laptop. The Training Lab can accommodate only 16 students. If you have a working laptop, please select one of the other sessions if you can. 

Library Policies and training locations are on the sign-up pages - please read carefully.


Any students needing special consideration or students experiencing difficulties with the scheduled times should contact Colleen Martinez Skinner immediately. No allowances will be made without prompt communication and reasonable excuse or scheduling conflict. If there are any questions, contact Colleen Martinez Skinner at or 904-680-7719.
