Development of Multimedia Creation Services and Resources in the Taylor Family Digital Library, University of Calgary
ARLIS/NA Conference Proceedings
The University of Calgary Libraries and Cultural Resources (LCR) is developing a comprehensive academic Multimedia Creation programme to support students from points of inspiration to archiving their original works. Facilities include video editing suites, a bank of Mac Pro workstations, video gaming, and digitizing equipment. We will also provide a touch table and digital sphere with software development kits for students to create their own work on these platforms. Library collections, including e-manuals, web resources (Creative Commons, public domain, and royalty-free resources), and learning tools (workshops, guides) support content creation. Services and resources will be developed collaboratively between several LCR and non-LCR units, including the Student Success Centre, Visual & Performing Arts, Digital Media Commons, and campus IT.
