The Digital Media Center and Creative Labs Center will operate and assist students through a web-based and in-person service model, during the fall 2020 semester. Students will not have direct access to the fabrication labs, photography studio, select scanners and smaller checkout items. Students will have access to the makerspace area in CINC 152. Both labs will adhere to university social distancing and safety guidelines and expect students that use the space do the same.
Students can reserve a makerspace tables on the online reservation system, which is similar to the one used for reserving time for the laser cutter. Faculty can also reserve studio and conferencing space located in the ENVD building and CLC in the ENVD program Outlook calendar.
Students can access links for assistance with file setup and file submissions on the Facilities & Resources ENVD webpage. The quality of submission files will be key to the success of the new service model.
Both centers have several student assistants ready to help students with software questions. Help can be requested through the public channels on the ENVD-CLC-DMC Microsoft Team. Students can connect with DMC and CLC between 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., seven days a week. Learn more about Microsoft Teams.
Video tutorials are being developed to assist students in preparing files for submission to each lab. They will be available on the ENVD YouTube channel.
File Submission Process
Acrylic, MDF and plywood will continue to be available for purchase through the labs. *Payment, via credit/debit card, must be made prior to taking possession of items.
