Columbus Metropolitan Library Partnership FAQs

What is the name of the program students will have access to via CML computers?
CML computers will offer access through a desktop icon labeled “Columbus State Virtual Computer Commons” that, when clicked, provides access for Columbus State students via a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) that enables the student to work as if they are in a Columbus State computer lab.
What are its features? What will it enable students to do?

This connection will benefit Columbus State students in that they will be able to log in through the desktop icon with their user name and password and receive all of the functionality, applications, security and management policies of the Columbus State network from any branch library in the CML system. This will be especially beneficial for students seeking access to Columbus State library resources and for distance learning students who may prefer to access their distance learning courses from a CML branch library.
