Media Creation Lab

As part of the Digital Scholarship Centre at York University Libraries, the Media Creation Lab provides equitable access to space, equipment and resources for students and faculty who are creating multimedia as part of learning, research, or teaching.

The MCL is currently in the process of piloting its workflows and processes with a limited group of partners. We will be working to expand our offerings to a broader set of partners as our pilot progresses. Your feedback is important to us. Please contact diginit@yorku.ca for more information, or fill out our pilot feedback form.
