Digital Media Studio

The Digital Media Studio is an open multimedia lab for the Appalachian State University Boone campus.  The purpose of the DMS is to provide access to current software and hardware, but most of all we provide help using digital media tools and technologies.

The Digital Media Studio is on the Lower Level of Belk Library and Information Commons in front of the Tech Desk where the Film/DVD collection used to be. See the library floor plans for the Lower Level map.
