This preconference will explore the new wave of creative spaces appearing in public libraries and explain why libraries have an essential role to play in digital media creation. Learn insights on how to sell the concept of a Digital Media Lab to library administration, set up a space that fits any budget, and offer programs and services that maintain public interest over time. Digital Media Labs are specialized spaces devoted to the creation of multimedia content. Offering a range of tools for video, audio and graphic design, these spaces position libraries as incubators for creativity and archives for content.
