Need Help in the Digital Media Lab?

Digital Services staff is available during the following times. Ashley is the Digital Services Manager, and Jane is the Digital Services Specialist. Drop-ins are welcome at any time if you will be working independently, but appointments are necessary if you require staff assistance. 

Our expanded desk schedule is:

  • Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday
    • Mornings from 10 AM–12 PM
    • Afternoons from 1–3 PM
    • Evenings from 4–8 PM
  • Thursday
    • Mornings/Afternoons from 10 AM–2 PM
    • Evenings from 4–8 PM
  • One Saturday per month
    • Saturday, December 14, 10 AM–2 PM

If you know you will need staff assistance, an appointment is strongly suggested. We do have appointment times available outside of the above hours. We try our best to be available, but staff help for drop-ins is not guaranteed. If you call the day before you’d like to come in, we can often accommodate you.

Digital Media Lab equipment reservations, as well as requesting the entire DML for recording, can be made up to a month in advance. If an appointment is not made, equipment is first-come, first-serve.

To make an appointment, please email our Digital Services staff at or call (815) 485-2605 ext. 127.
