FACULTY TESTIMONIALS

"The crew at the Digital Studio have completed a number of exceptionally large and complex digital projects for the University Libraries. This digitization work will help us to provide long-term preservation of and access to valuable resources. Their technical knowledge of digital file formats and their specifications, and their ability to troubleshoot issues with the capture of analog media assure us that they will take good care of our media. We highly recommend the Digital Studio to anyone on campus looking for a digitization service, or to anyone just looking to learn the ins and outs of digital files."

"This semester I had the pleasure of working with Justin Melick, digital media developer, on a read-aloud video for the Economics portion of my SST309 (Social Studies Methods) course. It turned out very well and the students who viewed it enjoyed this media alternative to using the document camera at the teachers station. The visual quality of a video is superior to the doc cam format of reading aloud to the class. I intend to use the video each semester from now on."
