The EU library has added a new database link to our list of online databases:

Construction Criteria Base (CCB) 


Construction Criteria Base (CCB) is an extensive electronic library of construction guide specifications, manuals, standards, and other essential criteria documents. Published and updated continuously, CCB contains the complete unabridged, approved, current electronic equivalents of over 10,000 documents direct from participating federal agencies. Below are examples of what you can find in the CCB:

  • A Regulations Library with information about OSHA, accessibility, and environmental  regulations
  • A CAD Library, including CAD and BIM resources from federal agencies
  • A Specifications Library, including United Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS)
  • A Documents Library, with building criteria for the Department of Defense, Army, Air Force, Navy, NASA, the VA, and other federal agencies

Documents are available as PDFs and as word-processing formats. You can search through all of the CCB’s content by using its main search box or its Advanced Search link.

To access the CCB, go to  and then log in with your Username (Student ID number) and Password (last 4 digits of your SSN; if first digit is a zero, replace it with a one). The CCB is located in the left-hand column in the big blue box.

 If you have any questions about accessing or using the CCB or any of our academic databases, ask your EU librarian!
