Which is better? Oregon’s Portland Community College or the University of Washington?

Portland, Oregon — — The Oregon State University library has opened its doors to the public on Thursday for the first time in its history, bringing the university’s flagship library to its community, a library spokeswoman said.

“We’re excited to open our doors to our community and to share the benefits of the partnership we’ve forged with the community,” said the library’s vice president for communications, Jennifer Smith.

“This is a great example of how we can bring community resources to the community through our partnership with the university.”

At a news conference Thursday, Smith said the partnership, which began in the early 1980s, involved providing more than 600,000 books and hundreds of thousands of digital documents and digital photos to community libraries around the state.

Oregon Public Broadcasting and WCCO are the news partners.

For a brief time, it was just another part of the university library system, she said.

The university was not involved in the project, but it was a great way to give back to our students and community and it made us realize that we really have to do more.

“This is not a project that has been done in the past,” Smith said.

“It is something that we can do.”

Smith said that the partnership includes providing free library services for the next several years, which will help the university save money.

It also allows for more open access to the university libraries, which are part of a new, $10 billion library system that includes the College of Liberal Arts, the College to the Arts and the College School of Engineering and Architecture.

The library also will open its doors in partnership with Portland-based Multnomah County Library, which is part of Portland’s Multnomak Housing Authority.

A number of community and nonprofit organizations have signed up for the library, including the Oregon Food Bank, Oregon Jobs With Justice and the Oregon Housing Commission.

Smith declined to disclose the amount of funding the partnership will receive, but said it’s about half the amount the library currently receives.

In a blog post Thursday, the Oregon Public Broadcasting Network said the university was donating a portion of its $2.2 billion budget to the library.

That includes $600,000 to open a new branch in the city’s west side, $300,000 for a new building and $150,000 a year for a library employee.

After the partnership with Oregon Public Media and WCPO, Oregon State is the only public university in the state to offer its library as part of its library system.

According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, the library is located in the north end of the main campus on the east side of campus. —

Colt McCoy ‘feels’ his new teammates are in his corner, even if he’s not fully sure who’s in charge

Colt McCoy, the Indianapolis Colts quarterback who suffered a season-ending ACL injury in the 2016 season opener, is starting to feel like he has some of his teammates in his inner circle.

“I’m pretty much the same as anybody else,” McCoy said, via the Indianapolis Star.

“If somebody is hurt, they’re going to want to come see me.

They’re going a lot of places.”

McCoy, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 draft, is still waiting to be cleared by doctors for his return to football.

He was one of five players to suffer serious knee injuries in the Colts’ season opener in Pittsburgh.

McCoy had a good preseason, but has yet to be ready for game action, with Colts coach Chuck Pagano calling him a “work in progress.”

The team announced Friday that he is “day-to-day” after missing the team’s Week 1 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a knee injury.

He is expected to be fully healthy by training camp.

“The way I see it, I have to have confidence in what I know,” McCoy told the Colts.

“So, I’m still figuring that out, and I’ll continue to figure that out.”

The Colts were forced to play without backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who was ruled out for the rest of the season because of a hip injury.

They were also without running back Tevin Coleman, who sustained a season ending ACL injury when he was hit in the face by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Corey Liuget during the second quarter.

McCoys’ return will open up the Colts passing game, and his presence could help alleviate the strain on the team defensively.

The Colts have been playing some more zone-blocking, but McCoy said the team will have to figure out how to run it against the Steelers.

McCoy has said the Colts will look to do more zone reads in the preseason.

“We’ve got to figure something out with our read-option game,” McCoy explained.

“I think we’re getting better and better with it, and it’ll come down to when it comes.”
