Digital Media Studio
The Digital Media Studio is located in Room 355 of the Belk Library and Information Commons. It provides the tools and knowledge for our patrons' video, audio, and design-related projects. From the novice to professional multimedia creators, we can accommodate your technical needs and answer your questions. The DMS is a learning lab. We're here to guide you toward project completion, but you are ultimately responsible for the final product. The studio is open for use by all students, faculty, and staff of Appalachian State University.
