EXPANDING ACCESS TO INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA & TECHNOLOGY
Since 2009 the OCCDLA and the OCCLA (Library Association) have partnered together to secure funding and provide access to streaming media and supplementary materials for all Oregon community colleges.
Goals & Objectives
The goals of this focus area address several key objectives listed in the OCCDLA Strategic Direction – cost savings, access and student success. It allows for smaller community colleges that have limited resources to access rich content for their students. Consortial database purchasing may also enable faculty to replace traditional textbook content in order to reduce student costs.
