One Button Studio

Located in both University Library and Mudd Library, the One Button Studio is a video recording setup that is free and easy to use. All you need is a USB thumb drive to save your video file. If you have any accompanying presentation slides, bring them on your USB drive.

In addition to the One Button Studio, Mudd Library is also home to the Lightboard Room, which is a glass chalkboard that uses light to allow users to face viewers while writing and recording a lecture.
