One Button Studio

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.

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.
