Coming Soon: Tool Shed at the Honnold Library

Curious about Google Glass, Arduino, data visualization, or how to create multimedia projects? Wish to augment your technical knowledge when creating digital humanities projects? The Digital Tool Shed can help!

In addition to the makeover planned for the Digital Humanities Studio, the GIS Lab at the Honnold Library is going to be renovated over Summer, 2016, to provide an accessible, technology-rich, inviting space for the Claremont Colleges community to explore digital research tools. Experts in various technologies will be on hand to answer questions and provide tutorials, workshops, and consultations. This space will also available for professors, librarians, and graduate students to try out innovative pedagogy in a technology-rich active learning center, and it will provide the perfect showcase to present digital projects, unique primary sources, and more!

Conveniently located down the hall in the Library, the Tool Shed will be the primary partner facility of the Digital Humanities Studio for supporting multimedia-centered student and scholarly production. The Tool Shed will include flexible furniture, hardware, such as DSLR cameras & kits on loan, a “green screen”, post-production software, data analysis software, and a data visualization wall. Plans for an audio studio and oral history recording studio are also in the works.
