Study rooms are small, enclosed rooms for groups of 2-8 people, ideal for studying, tutoring, working on a small group project, or interviewing. Visit the reservation page to get specific information on room capacity and equipment. For recurring reservation requests, email mudd@northwestern.edu.

Geospatial and Data Visualization Lab

The GIS lab has four high performance PC workstations, each equipped with dual monitors. These workstations are designed for use by students, faculty, and staff who are interested in doing geospatial or data projects. Contact gis@northwestern.edu to set up a consultation.

Video Recording Studio

Lightboard

Created by Northwestern Engineering Professor, Michael Peshkin, Lightboard is a glass chalkboard that uses light to allow users to face viewers while writing and recording a lecture. The board is video taped in mirror reflection, giving users a quick and easy way to communicate technical subjects, equations, and sketches, all while engaging with the camera and the viewers. For more information on this technology, visit the Lightboard website

One Button Studio

One Button Studio allows faculty, staff, and students to produce and record professional-quality video projects for no cost. All you need is a WildCARD to access the library and a USB flash drive to store your recording. Use the One Button Studio to record your presentation or lecture, deliver a research presentation, or to create an instructional demonstration. One Button Studio is has locations in both University (Main) Library and Mudd Library. For more information on One Button technology and equipment, visit the Northwestern IT page

The space will be equipped with the software needed to create designs, and a Makerbot 3D scanner, replicator and printer. Library staff will be on hand to assist with all aspects of the process.
