The Community College of Colorado in Denver announced the installation of four touchscreen kiosks manufactured by ZIVELO. The kiosks enable career and technical education students to access all of the institution's databases, receive 24-hour chat access and individual research assistance.

The deployment was a critical move for CCA, since its Lowry campus lacks a centralized library, according to the announcement. A creative vehicle was needed to allow for better access to the institution's databases and individual research assistance without a large-scale capital improvement project. Nearly $76,000 in Perkins Project grant funding will be used over the next year to finance the self-service kiosks and increase the reach of library services to a larger segment of the student population.

"Over 50 percent of the students at CCA attend classes at Lowry, so we need to have the same services there," said Megan Kinney, the college's director of Library Services. "So much of what we do is electronic and online in terms of the resources themselves ... This is kind of a physical manifestation of the Learning Resource Center at Lowry. My expectation is that we'll increase student retention and completion by having the support resources that they need on that campus to help them with their research projects."
