Digital Media Studio

Calling all creative souls here at Annandale! Sometimes, projects require a little more creativity that the campus computers can’t accommodate for. That’s why we want to remind students that the Digital Media Studio can be found in the Library and is equipped with the software you need for your photo, video, and graphic design projects.

Choose to work on a Mac or PC and access Photoshop, Audacity, Final Cut Pro, and more! For a complete list, go to https://libguides.nvcc.edu/andigitalmediastudio/software
In conjunction with the software, you can use cameras, tripods, microphones, and more, available to check out at the circulation desk.

Ready to get started? It’s easy to set up an appointment! Just go to https://libcal.nvcc.edu/booking/ANMediaStudio and book your seat! While booking, you will have the option to request tutoring during available hours.

Have you used the Digital Media Studio to create a multimedia project before? We would love to display student work in the library! Send us your submissions at anlibtechteam@nvcc.edu

The Library Technology Team exists to help students by providing assistance and access to all the resources the library has to offer. That’s why this semester the library is introducing a new member of the team, a Peer Technology Tutor, who is available to provide one-on-one assistance with Digital Media Studio software and Library equipment. The Digital Media Studio is a space within the Library that students can use for their photo, video editing, audio, or graphic design projects, equipped with the software students need. All you need to do to get started is book a seat in the studio. Stay tuned for future posts highlighting featured equipment and software. What will you create?

NOVA Puzzle

Do you like working on jigsaw puzzles? The Annandale Campus Library has a table with a jigsaw puzzle in the Reference Collection area. People put puzzle pieces together little by little everyday. A good thing about a jigsaw puzzle is that “there is a solution to a jigsaw puzzle unlike some of the other -puzzles- in life. When working on a puzzle, you see progress no matter how difficult the puzzle may be.(Melannie Svoboda, www.melanniesvobodasnd.org/why-i-like-working-jigsaw-puzzles/)”

Would you like to join us to have fun in solving the puzzle?
