The Studio includes an A.V. room full of equipment to help you produce videos or podcasts, or take great photos. You must be 13+ years of age, or accompanied by an adult, to reserve the A.V. room or to check out Community Equipment for use in The Studio.
A valid library card is needed to use the A.V. room and to check out equipment specifically for the space, BUT if you don’t have a card, it’s no problem! Visit our 2nd Floor Help Desk to check out equipment using a guest pass. For A.V. room use without a card you will also need to sign a use contract and let us hold onto your picture ID while you’re using the resources in The Studio.
Reserve this space
The room can be booked in two-hour blocks up to twice per week. Please visit the reference desk or call 317-881-1953 to schedule. You can also book a time online.
First-time users are encouraged to spend their first reservation becoming acquainted with the equipment. Learning in the space is intended to be self-directed.We have also made available all user guides and instruction manuals for your convenience. Library staff will be on hand to get you started and will be happy to guide you to additional resources, online tutorials, and classes available through Lynda.com.
Saving your work
Makers can bring either an external hard drive or SD card to save their files to depending on their project. The library has SD cards and SD card readers available for checkout for use in the space only. Projects can be saved temporarily to a GPL SD card and then transferred to the cloud or a USB drive brought from home.
Our A.V. room is equipped with basic audio recording and film equipment to get you started with your next production. For a complete list of equipment with helpful resources, click on an image below.
