One Button Studio

Located in the Schmidt Library, it's our 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.

Note: Our One Button Studio is only available by reservation and while the library is open. To reserve the studio, contact us.
