Students and faculty can create and edit video and audio, podcasts and interactive websites using a new state-of-the-art digital media lab in Milne Library.

The digital media lab (DML) offers an array of media to support academic endeavors and professional-level equipment and software for Mac and PC computers.

"Users of the lab will find it an inspiring and creative place to design digital media, edit audio and video, or develop digital research and scholarship projects," said Sue Chichester, chief information officer and director of the department of computing and information technology (CIT).

Library and CIT staff members will be available to assist in using the equipment and software during library hours.

"The lab places these technologies all in one location on campus, which provides convenience for equipment check-out and project guidance," said Cyril Oberlander, interim Milne Library director. "We are trying to merge digital scholarship with a strong instructional design component. This multi-media lab is a foundation that we will continue to develop based on the needs of our students and faculty."
