The Space & Equipment
LIB 113 has two separate meeting areas, as well as audio and video production items for use in MDOCS and Project VIS workshops, courses and activities.
- LIB 113 A A conference area with a large screen and computer podium (Mac Mini)
- LIB 113 B A computer-aided worksace and worskhop area with a podium/projector, 12 MacPro computers, a large format flatbed scanner and black and white laser printer. For computer software, click here.
- LIB 113 Recording Booth A small recording booth for voiceovers and editing.
- Equipment. Most of MDOCS' production equipment is managed by Media Services in the basement of the Library. A limited number of audio/walking tour headsets, audio recorders, Digital SLR cameras, and relevant support materials are housed in the Lab. These are used primarily for classes and workshops. If you would like to use any of the equipment in a class, or for other documentary and visual work, please consult with Jordana Dym (MDOCS) or Nicky Tavares (Visual Forum)
Student-led Workshop (fall 2014- listening in the library)
LIB 113 Student Assistants — staff LIB 113 ~30 hours/week during the semester and offer individual/group support and workshops. Skills supported and presented in workshops include introductions to:
- basic audio recording and interviewing
- video recording and editing
- poster design and web design
Please check here for a list of hours.
In addition, the Lab is open to faculty, staff, and students with individual or group assignments on an as-needed basis. To schedule an event in this space, please place a request in the EMS scheduling system (Skidmore user login required; VPN if scheduling from off-campus).
While LIB 113 is not an open access area, it is a resource designed to support work across the curriculum and as possible the co-curriculum. We welcome your proposals to host informal gatherings, screenings and discussions, and workshops, and will do our best to accommodate and create non-credit bearing experiences to help you advance your work!
