The Library Services Co-Ser offers component school districts access to two important programs. Coordinated Cooperative Collection Development (CCCD), and Online Database Resources (research resources accessed via the Internet, including eBooks).
CCCD – This service provides an organized way for libraries to acquire specialized, in-depth collections of information resources to meet specific in-house curriculum needs. With CVES coordination of collection development, duplication of specialized materials is minimal, school libraries are able to cooperatively provide access to a wider variety of resources and library monies are more effectively spent.
Online Database Resources– This service will support the instructional program and information needs of students, teachers, administrators and staff. Participating districts will receive direct access to remote electronic information and instructional library resources of their choosing from over 50 vendors and hundreds of resource choices, as well as an online library of eBooks and audiobooks through OverDrive. The School Library System will offer instruction in online search strategies, as well as technical support to library media personnel.
