What is the 226Q CCD collection? The Cooperative Collection Development, or “CCD”, collection at 27Q226 will be used in these Science lessons. The CCD collection is a large group of books and videos about pets and wild creatures of the air, land and sea, and the environments they live in. The Animals CCD collection offers a wide variety of reading levels, has a wealth of illustrations and subjects, and has many individual titles and sets of specific wildlife encyclopedias.
