Bryan Hull and Brandon Patterson have written an article, “Creating a Low-cost, DIY Multimedia Studio in the Library,” a case study about their conceptual, planning, implementation and feedback phases of an audio/video studio called the One Button at Tree of Hippocrates Education Studio at the University of Utah Eccles Health Sciences Library.

“This case study will explain steps in creating a multimedia studio inside a health sciences library with existing software and a minimal budget. From ideation to creation to assessment, the process will be outlined in development phases and include examples of documentation, user feedback, lessons learned, and future considerations. We’ll explore multimedia software like One Button Studio, GameCapture, Kaltura, Adobe Creative Cloud, Garage Band, and others and compare their effectiveness when working on audio and visual projects in the library.”
