If you’ve visited the Digital Media Experience Lab this winter, you may have noticed some changes based on community feedback. Here’s a roundup of those improvements:
- Longer Hours: The DME is now open later, until 8:00 pm Monday to Friday.
- Longer Loan Periods: A new 48-hour loan period replaces one-day equipment loans. Please note that self-service renewals are not possible and you should speak to DME staff if you have any questions. Pro Tip: Borrow an item on Thursday and keep it for the weekend – it’ll be due Monday at 11:00 am.
- New Equipment: Snowball microphones, a range of camera lenses, and Leap Motion sensors are just some of the equipment now available for you to borrow. Have suggestions for additional equipment? Post below or reach out to DME staff.
- Streamlined Borrowing: Instead of needing to visit the Library Circulation Desk each time you borrow, head straight to the DME. Remember to bring your OneCard. The first time you borrow equipment, you will need to complete and submit an online DME Technology Equipment Lending Agreement Form and go to Library Circulation Desk to complete registration.
Is the DME all new to you? The DME is a makerspace, fabrication lab and digital media production facility open to all Ryerson students and faculty. Drop by anytime the DME is open or sign up for a tutorial to learn more.
