Walk-in clients are welcome and will be accommodated based on the availability of resources.

Conveniently located on the second floor of the new library, the Media Lab is a fully staffed, client supported, state-of-the-art facility where students and faculty can learn and experience the many uses of new media in theological education. Lab staff will provide limited introductory instruction and assistance in the use of lab equipment and software as it pertains to the clients’ project. The lab will not produce media projects for clients. The lab is a self-paced resource for clients to train and complete multimedia projects independently.

The Media Lab offers a unique set of hardware and software resources to make use of new media tools. The lab is open to Seminary faculty and currently enrolled students during the hours posted for endeavors undertaken for class related projects (view project planning guide) or in the course of conducting official Seminary business.

Except for standard laser printing charges, there is no charge for the use of lab facilities or equipment check-out. As with all campus computer labs, users are responsible for supplying their own materials (CD, DVD, VHS, Hi8 digital tape, etc.) which can be purchased at the campus book store or any local computer or office supply store. Clients must check in and out of the lab by recording their times on a sign in sheet. An assessment form (view and print assessment form) will be issued to every client serviced in order to assess campus wide resource usage and skills evaluation. All lab clients should understand that assessment is essential to instructional and service improvements, and they agree to complete a brief skills evaluation form prior to commencement and upon completion of each multimedia project.

Equipment check-out is available to faculty and currently enrolled students, for use in the production of class related projects or in the course of conducting official Seminary business. Click here to view the media lab's inventory of equipment available for check-out.
