How can I place an order for PebbleGo Next?

PebbleGo Next orders can be placed the same way as any other order (i.e. fax, web, phone, etc.). In all cases, please make sure to include the ISBN(s) of the product(s) you wish to order.  If you are ready to place your order now, click here.

Since PebbleGo Next is setup with a username and password, if you have a preference of what that username and password should be, please also include that information on your order and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. Additionally, it is very helpful to include the e-mail address for the contact person who will receive the Welcome E-mail.

If you are already a PebbleGo subscriber, your PebbleGo Next subscription will have the same user name and password.

Multiple schools in my district are subscribing to PebbleGo Next. Is there a quantity discount?

Depending on the number of schools in your district, there may be discounted pricing. Please contact your local sales rep for specific details.

Once I place the order for PebbleGo Next, what happens next?

Once Capstone receives the order, Customer Service will contact you if there are any questions. If there are not any questions with the order, within 5-7 business days, you will receive a Welcome E-mail from Customer Service confirming your username, password and URL.  Once you have this information, you can begin using PebbleGo Next.

I want to use my iPad to access PebbleGo Next. Is that possible?

You bet! You can learn more about this on our system requirements page.

My school uses a firewall. Are there any addresses that need to be white listed on the network?

Yes. In some cases, you may experience problems with some of the pages loading if your school is filtering traffic on your network. Please ask your IT or network team to white list (allow access) to these two domains -  and

When I click on the PebbleGo Next direct link from your e-mail, it still asks me for my username and password. How can I fix this?

Depending on the software that you use to view your e-mail, it sometimes does not recognize the entire URL and it cuts it off. This will cause it not to work. To overcome this, try copying and pasting the URL from your Welcome E-mail directly into your web browser. Note that the last part of your URL may contain special characters and/or equal signs. It’s critical that all of these special characters be included in your URL. If your URL still doesn’t work after trying this, please contact Customer Service.

My direct link used to work, but when I click on it now, it asks me for my username and password. Why is this?

Again, the direct link for your site is unique to you and the URL is different for each username and password combination. So, if someone changes the password of your site, that will change your direct link and you’ll want to contact Customer Service to get the new one. This is very important to know as if you have multiple computers that have shortcuts/bookmarks to your PebbleGo site, they will all have to be changed.

I would like to have a different username or password. How can I change it?

Your username must be unique and because of this, only Customer Service can modify it. You are, however, able to modify your password by logging into PebbleGo using your administrative username and password.

Can my students access PebbleGo Next at home?

To take full advantage of PebbleGo Next, it is strongly encouraged that students access this valuable resource at school and at home. To access PebbleGo Next at home, the students can simply go to and type in the username and password for your school. This will allow them the exact same access as in school.

How can I promote my school’s user name and password to parents and other teacher’s within the building?

Your school’s user name and password is unique and confidential to your school so please avoid posting it on public sites. Popular ideas for sharing the password within your school community are:

  • Link on school website for parents to request access information
  • Letters home
  • Posters and bookmarks within the school building. Sometimes, Capstone has such items in stock, free of charge. Contact customer service to see if we have any available.

How can I track usage?

As part of your subscription, you have access to an administrative site that grants you access to usage information. When you go to, log in using the administrative username and password that you were provided in your welcome e-mail and that will provide access to usage information.

How is PebbleGoNext different than PebbleGo?

PebbleGo Next is the next step for researchers ready to graduate to more robust database content. PebbleGo Next covers content appropriate to grades 3-6 curriculum content at a reading level geared to those students. PebbleGo covers curriculum content for grades K-2 at a lower reading level more accessible to beginning researchers.

Instead of using a username and password to log into PebbleGo Next, I want my students to have a direct link to my site. Is this possible?

Absolutely! When you receive your Welcome E-mail from Customer Service, the URL that is sent to you will be a direct link to YOUR PebbleGo Next site. This link can then be setup as a shortcut/bookmark on the computer.

Can my students access both PebbleGo and PebbleGo Next through the same link.

At this time, no. Your user name and password is the same for both sites but they each require unique access.

Do you have a list of the articles included in the database?

Yes, we do. See them here
