CITL Multimedia Desktop Studio

The CITL Multimedia Desktop Studio is a reservable room, on the third floor of Founders Memorial Library, featuring a high performance desktop computer (Windows) and popular multimedia design and development software, as well as a few configurable options for more complex multimedia projects such as podcasts and audio interviews with staff assistance.  Common faculty projects include recording screencasts and software demonstrations, using Adobe Creative Suite tools to create and edit images, animations, and video, and recording or practicing desktop based lectures. The multimedia studio is a great place to practice with new software or get assistance from CITL staff on a multimedia project. If you are working with a CITL staff member on a project, they may suggest a meeting in the Studio to explore a tool or a process together.
