Digital Media Lab

This guide is to help you learn how to create digital media projects


The HSU Digital Media Lab (DML) is here to help you create video, audio, photo, and web-based projects.

Requesting Equipment

We have equipment to borrow, including cameras, microphones, 360 video cameras, virtual reality viewers, and many accessories. All of the DML equipment is available to borrow at the Checkout Desk on the first floor of the Library. Items can be borrowed for 72 hours and all equipment is free to use.

During the pandemic we will continue to send out Digital Media Equipment. Due to the complexities of checking out and shipping audio/visual recording equipment, we will likely need to contact you for more information, so please watch for any emails from us. To start a request, fill out and submit the Digital Media Equipment Request form (button below) using your HSU login.

If you have any questions about equipment, or other aspects of a digital project, we'd are happy to help! Contact us (the Digital Media Lab) at dml@humboldt.edu.

View the links on the left (top on mobile) to see what equipment is available to borrow by project type.

Computers & Software

We also have computers with production and editing software available to all students, all day. The DML computers are located in the Library Makerspace on the third floor of the Library across from Special Collections.


The DML also offers instruction on learning about the equipment and software needed to create your projects. Through regular SkillShops and special events, the DML is the place on campus to learn about digital media. Interested in creating digital projects? Not sure where to start? Looking for some inspiration? The DML is the place to get new ideas, get your hands on great equipment and software and learn about new tools. Contact us to learn more or to set up a one-on-one tutoring session.
