Your Digital Media Suite appointment
Overview of Resources
The Digital Media Suite is divided into two main sections, the staffed, instructional lab and studios and the unstaffed, self-service lab and One Button Studio.
Staffed Resources - Main Computer Lab and Audio/Video Studios
The Digital Media Suite staffed lab has 7 Windows and 3 Mac computers available. All have the complete Adobe Creative Cloud collection of software installed. Two of the computers have dual-monitor setups for more advanced projects. The Video Studio and the Audio Studio are also available in this space. Staff can provide support with all the hardware and most Adobe software (see below for exceptions). Staff are also available to introduce you to the use of the studio spaces and provide technical support.

All the self-service resources are available anytime the East Wing of Ekstrom Library is open (see Library hours here).
