The College of DuPage Library Media Lab provides space, resources, services, and expertise to support students in creative uses of multimedia technology. Students can design, create, and share digital audio, video, and images.
We help COD students build digital literacy skills for class assignments and for personal growth through workshops, and small group or 1-on-1 assistance. Located on the lower floor of the Library, students can drop in to work on projects or check out equipment, or reserve space ahead of time.
Learn more about the Media Lab by exploring the links to the right, visiting us in person, or calling us at (630) 942-3085.
