The Kodiak Room is a designated library space that serves as:

  • a distance education training center for faculty and delivery point for instructors,
  • a seminar space for distance education students and faculty to meet in person and/or online,
  • and a central location for virtual meetings and tutorials.

A specialized Kodiak Collection supports new courses with both print and digitized materials, including local oral histories, photographs, primary source materials, and cultural artifacts.

To further assist eLearning development at Kodiak College, the Kodiak Room offers a virtual counterpart on the college website to serve as a web portal for local digitized collections. This virtual space is hosted by our own Carolyn Floyd Library

One of the first additions to the virtual component of the Kodiak Room is a special exhibit on the 1964 earthquake and tsuanami that drastically impacted Kodiak Island. 

The virtual component of the Kodiak Room is being developed throughout Years 4 and 5.
