Digital Media and Innovation Lab


The Digital Media & Innovation Lab in Ellis Library has a recording booth, a fil studio, 3D scanners, art tablets, and VR goggles. These resources are available to students for class or non-class projects. Students can request an appointment to use these resources using the links at the bottom of each resource or walk in.

Service Level Agreement (SLA)

Lab resources are available to students by appointment only. Once the project proposal is approved, staff may request setting up a consultation. During consultation, lab-staff will provide a basic overview of the resources (hardware and software) and expectations for use of the lab. Students will be expected to learn skills beyond the basics on their own with some guidance from staff. While lab staff can assist with setup and orientation, students will be expected to plan and execute their project on their own. Students are responsible for their projects and project outcomes.

The University Libraries Digital Media Commons is a combination of areas in Ellis that support creating and using multimedia for your projects, education, and creativity. The area includes two computer labs located in the Information Commons, equipment checkout at the circulation desk, a digital media lab, and a film studio.
