NOTICE: The Simple Video Studio has replaced the legacy One Button Studio.  It's still simple, but is no longer controlled by a single button.

The Simple Video Studio (MLIB 2500B) is located in the Fine Arts & Architecture Library.

Recording sessions, up to one hour long, are available anytime the library is open. Reservations must be made in advance. Use the Library's Room & Space Scheduler to reserve the Simple Video Studio.
