Although many faculty now require student projects to be presented in a multimodal format, it is rarely feasible for each department or school to acquire all of the technology needed to support those efforts or to require that each student purchase the equipment. This article provides details of the Video Production Studio in the Media Commons at the Undergraduate Library, which serves as a centralized service space that houses a robust loanable technology program and collaborative studios that facilitates the creation of video and audio projects. It is an environment that helps to foster discussion and collaboration from students and faculty to help create solutions through technology. The Media Commons is a service space that offers faculty, students, and users the ability to create, disseminate, use, and curate digital media. It meets a need for broad access to media creation tools, video and audio training, and instruction in media literacy.
