As part of the Ekstrom Library Learning Commons, the Digital Media Suite (DMS) began as a collaboration between Delphi Center, REACH and the University Libraries offering students access to equipment and support for the creation and editing of images, sound, and video. Using the latest tools, students can access, analyze, evaluate, and create multimedia projects. Specially trained tutors are available to assist users with projects and to offer technical support. Encouraging and supporting media and visual literacy in students is a primary goal of the DMS. The ability to understand the power of images and sound is a skill needed for the 21st century. Visual and media literacy transcends disciplines, and the DMS provides a multimedia work space for creating projects and assignments regardless of area of study.
Users can create videos, digital images, and podcasts using the latest equipment available. We have 11 Windows and 5 Mac computers available by appointment or drop-in according to availability. The DMS provides access to an audio studio, a video/photography studio, and a self-service audio/video studio. University faculty, students, and staff can also check out recording equipment and accessories from the Digital Media Suite.
