    This is so exciting! I can’t wait!

  2. [...] New Library ‘Digital Projects Lab’ Taking Reservations — Arlington Central Library’s new Digital Projects Lab is opening on Monday, April 16. The lab — which will offer library patrons the use of digital media creation tools like Photoshop and Final Cut Pro — is now accepting reservations. [Arlington Public Library] [...]

    This is a very exciting idea. Creation of digital content can be very expensive, especially if you do it on a limited basis. Having a publicly accessible platform will enable more people to create unique content. I hope that you will roll this capability out to the branch libraries, and also find some way of showcasing the work that people create using the Lab.

    I think this is a great idea! What version of Final Cut Pro are you using? Is it FCP 7 or FCP X?

    Will the standard $.15 per page printing fee apply to printing in the DPL?

    • The Librarians says:

      No, printing in the Digital Projects Lab is going to be different from standard Library printing.

      Price to print – $2.00 per page. This is because the printer uses very high quality archival inks.

      Paper – we supply regular printer paper in standard sizes (8 1/2×11″, 8 1/2×14″ and 11×17″), and Lab users can bring their own specialty paper.

      Please let us know of other questions you may have – we’re working on an FAQ now that will be added to the Digital Projects Lab info page.

    What a great idea! I’m so proud to live in a community that boasts a cutting edge library like Arlington’s Digital lab. I’m not being paid to say this! As a student of video production, I’m looking forward to using this service soon.
