One Button Studio

Our One Button Studio is only available by reservation, when the library is open. There is a three hour gap after each use, for cleaning. Contact us to reserve the studio, or for more info.we

Located in the Schmidt Library, it's a simplified recording studio that requires just the touch of a button (and a thumb drive!).

Here you can record presentations, interviews, demonstrations, use the whiteboard, or stand in front of your PowerPoint while you talk.
