The Cultural Resources Information Bulletin Board (CRIBB) is one of several bulletin boards maintained at the University of Illinois with support from the Army Corps of Engineers. Although available to the public, it is specifically designed to enhance communication among personnel at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) District and Division offices, military installations, and educational institutions which are concerned with preserving archaeological and historical resources. Through it they can share strategies and results, ask for and give advice, and recommend good sources for up-to-date information.

Current subject areas on the CRIBB menu are: artifacts, computerized data management systems, historic preservation, contracting, dating, management, site preservation, and surveying. In addition the system contains a directory of cultural resource people, meeting information, and listings of both published and unpublished materials.

Subscription fees also entitle users to access other databases of the Environmental Technical Information System (ETIS), including the Economic Impact Forecast System (EIFS), Computer-aided Environmental Legislative Data System (CELDS), Soils Systems, and Environmental Impact Computer System (EICS).
