Digital Media Center supports teaching and research

The Digital Media Center (formerly known as the Biology New Media Center) is a campus resource supporting the use of digital media in teaching and research for faculty, staff, and graduate students.  There is equipment there for free loan, work stations, and best of all, trained staff who can help you.

The DMC is open 8:30a to 7:00p Monday – Thursday and 8:30a to 5:00p on Fridays.  Assistance is provided at no cost, except for consumable materials.  You can call for an appointment (265-4817). You may also walk in, but appointments help make sure the resources you need are available. We are located in Room 3130 of the Genetics/Biotechnology Center at 425 Henry Mall.
