    MacPro stations, equipment, and studios are reservable in advance for three hour time blocks. Reservations can be made in person or by calling 617-373-2465. You may leave a message after business hours. Reservations are recommended during peak periods.

    A digital camera is available for in-Library use. Two mini-DV camcorders circulate outside the Library, but must be returned the same day before the DMDS closes.

    Saving Your Media

    You are responsible for saving and storing your files. Please provide recordable media for exporting files and projects: CDs, DVD-Rs, flash drives or portable hard drives. The Studio will not be responsible for any files left on Studio computers.
