Digital Media Commons Open House Tues Sept 18 4-5.30 pm

The University Libraries are excited to announce that on August 20, the Digital Media Commons (DMC) opens in the lower level of Jackson Library. This is a great new resource for your students as they take on multimedia projects.

What is the DMC?
The DMC supports the use and creation of multimedia in education, scholarship, and creative expression. We provide hands-on assistance, consult with patrons on digital projects, and offer access to the essential tools for creating digital resources such as web pages, digital images, digital video, digital audio, PowerPoint presentations, and more.

Who staffs the DMC?
The DMC will provide expert staff from the University Libraries, digital literacy consultants from the Undergraduate Studies' Multilteracy Centers Program, and graduate assistants from the Media Studies and Library and Information Sciences departments.

To learn more about the DMC and the tools and services we offer, please visit our website. We also invite you to a special Open House on Tuesday, September 18, from 4-5:30 pm, to meet our staff and see our space.
