October will be here before you know! Okay, maybe we’re rushing things a bit, but we’re excited to bring guest speaker Mikael ‘Mick’ Jacobsen, Supervisor of Adult Computer Labs/Librarian at the Skokie Public Library to Long Island to explore Digital Media Labs.
This talk will explore the new wave of creative spaces appearing in public libraries all over the United States and explains why libraries have an essential role in digital media creation. The instructor will share his insights on how to sell the concept of a Digital Media Lab, set up a space, and offer programs and services that maintain public interest over time. If you build it, they will come!
Digital Media Labs are specialized creative spaces devoted to the creation of multimedia content. Offering a range of hardware and software tools for video, audio and graphic design, these spaces position libraries as incubators for creativity and archives for user-generated content.
