Are you making a video?

The Libraries offer tools from video cameras to microphones that you can check out, specialized software in the SMART Learning Commons, and consultation services. For an easy way to record a presentation, try the University of Minnesota’s 1:Button Studios, which are fully automated HD video recording spaces with professional studio lighting and sound equipment. They are set up to record high-quality video projects without any knowledge of lights and cameras. There are currently three 1:Button Studio locations on campus, with more in the works!
