A public library/academic library partnership. We like!
Earlier this month, all public computers throughout CML’s 21 library locations – roughly 800 PCs – have been equipped with Columbus State Virtual Computer Commons. The program enables CSCC students to log in and access their online coursework while receiving all of the functionality of the Columbus State network.
“We’re committed to providing resources for students of all ages in central Ohio,” said CML CEO Patrick Losinski. “CML continues to be a proud education partner with Columbus State, and we’re thrilled to begin this new chapter.”
Additionally, the library’s new Driving Park Branch, set to open to the public onSaturday, July 12, will include a dedicated Life Skills area, which CSCC students can reserve and utilize as a distance learning site. The space, which has eight PCs and an interactive whiteboard, will also be used for proctored exams and other college events.
“This partnership will turn the library’s new Driving Park Branch into a distance learning hub for our students,” said college President David T. Harrison, “and is a great example of how collaboration can benefit our communities.”
