Digital Media Commons

Digital Media Commons

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. There are 22 Apple iMacs located in the Digital Media Commons with editing software installed. The Digital Media Lab is located in Room 156 in Ellis Library. It provides a recording booth (WhisperRoom) with various software; a film studio with a camera and green screen; and a 3D scanner (Structure Sensor). The primary purpose for the lab is for librarians to create teaching and learning material. These resources are also available to students, by appointment, for educational purposes. Students can request an appointment to use these resources using the links at the bottom of each resource.

For filming and photography in the Green Screen rooms, we also provide equipment at the circulation desk. For design and editing, you can get access to digital resources like Photoshop and Dreamweaver that are locally installed for lightning-fast creation and editing at our computer workstations.
