Seminar Room 1 is a bright, versatile space, popular for teaching as well as holding meetings and workshops, and contains our 4K videowall, which can be set up for presentations or for group work with up to nine separate inputs and is compatible with a wide variety of devices for sharing content via the AirServer. The Seminar Room can be arranged in to a number of different layouts including boardroom and lecture styles with or without tables.
We have several guides available on the best use of the video wall, including a guide to facilities, a video wall quickstart guide, and advice on how to get the best out of the video wall for teaching.
Digital Humanities Seminar 2 (B.02)
Seminar Room 2 is bookable through the central room bookings system, and is particularly suited to small-group screenings for film and video material.
Our MakerSpace is equipped with a graphics workstation for 3D manipulation and processing, and Makerbot and Ultimaker 3D printers.
Our breakout space can be used for ad hoc discussions, groupwork and meetings. There are three pod areas available to use informally or to book, each clustered around a display screen which can be connected to display from a laptop.
Lab 1 - Photography
Lab 1 is our primary photographic lab, and contains our copystand for 2D digitisation of flat material such as photographs, posters, letters and loosely-bound books.
Lab 2 - Photography, 3D image capture and training
Lab 2 is a flexible space for working with any portable equipment that needs a controlled environment; it has daylight balanced overhead lighting, regulated ventilation and sufficient space for demonstrations to groups of up to 20. It is normally configured for our portable conservation copy cradle, which is particularly suitable for bound volumes and small-scale material requiring conservation-safe handling. Lab 2 also has a dome for RTI and space for photogrammetry photography.
Lab 3 - Audio Visual
The studio space in Lab 3 can be booked for recording and editing sound and video for educational and promotional content. It features an L-shaped main studio area, suitable for two-camera video interviews, and has an acoustically-designed environment to ensure high-quality sound recording with minimised external noise.
