Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries
The DSC support audio recording and editing by providing spaces, equipment, and work stations.
Located in McHenry Library Room 0384, the Digital Production Studio was created in response to the growing demand to digitize older media formats. The DPS includes the hardware and software needed to digitize VHS and audio cassette materials. Because of the sometimes complex processes, affiliates who want to use the space must first consult with DSC staff to make sure the needs of the project can be supported. The DPS is only open when DSC staff are available, and can be reserved through individual consultations.
Located in McHenry Library Room 0344, the DSC Podcasting Studio is a space for you to record audio, create podcasts, and experiment with sound. The room offers sound insulation and can be reserved for recording or interview sessions. Audio equipment is available for checkout at the Media Desk in the DSC.
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
The land acknowledgement used at UC Santa Cruz was developed in partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program at the UCSC Arboretum.
