Statewide, consortial licensing of streaming media collection(s) allows all of the community colleges in Oregon to have access to rich content that is informative and engaging to students, and appropriate as primary or supplemetary course material. It is a collaborative partnership with members from both OCCDLA and librarians from OCCLA.
