When the Fall 2013 semester begins, students will be surprised to find the new gem that is located on the third floor of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library. The newly constructed Digital Media Lab has landed a home in the library in hopes of being a destination where students can spend countless hours working on and obtaining knowledge pertaining to 21st century technology.As a way to keep UMass students up to speed with the ever changing technological world, the Digital Media Lab will be offering workshops, training, and opportunities for students to use top of the line equipment and software. From cameras to video cameras, MacBooks, GarageBand and more, the Digital Media Lab will provide the resources that students need.
Some other exciting features include two whisper-proof recording booths that students may use to record music or anything of the like. In addition to this, there is a green screen room that can be used while recording film. If these resources don’t fit your fancy, you could
always find a seat at one of the many tables and get down to work. The newly hired staff member will be on duty during operating hours to answer any questions or if a second opinion is needed. This lab is a great addition to UMass and will provide students a place to let their creativity flourish!
