Consultations & Support – We continue to offer remote consultation for the campus community on multimedia software and media equipment. Contact us with any questions or to schedule a Zoom meeting.
Physical access to the Sanford Media Center continues to be restricted. Limited access to our workstation lab and recording spaces is expected to resume at the beginning of the fall 2020 semester.
Fall 2020 Instruction – We are currently scheduling instruction for fall 2020 for all supported multimedia. Please use the form on the Tours & Instruction page. We understand that this semester will require instructors be flexible and improvisational. We will work with you to plan sessions that will meet your needs.
We are happy to assist any instructors who wish to revise their multimedia project lesson plans in response to the limited access to equipment, spaces, computers, etc. caused by the COVID’s disruptions to normal campus activity.
Media equipment – The Libraries are in the process of finalizing the procedures for media equipment circulation in the fall. Details to follow soon.
Users with files on the SMC local drive:
The SMC shared storage is self-contained and not connected to the larger campus network, although we have a remote backup available as a last resort. If you had projects on the server and you were unable to back it up before campus emptied for the break and need them before the end of summer, contact us and we will do our best to get you your files.
Equipment and Software:
Info on software available to you remotely, as well as suggestions for equipment alternatives and project workarounds can be found at our software LibGuide here: guides.lib.ua.edu/SMCApps. Shoot us a question if you have one!
