The Creative Studio provides expert support and consultation in the use of digital video, photography, audio, music and graphic design technology, as well as 3D and virtual reality. We have locations in Richter Library and Music Library with some equipment also available at RSMAS library. With the wide variety of creative software installed on our workstations, our large and small format printing services, and the available equipment loan program, we have everything you need to create fresh and original digital content.

The Creative Studio is the Create area of the Learning Commons which supports learning at the University of Miami through the co-location, coordination and enhancement of existing academic services. The University of Miami Libraries’ Learning Commons is the result of collaboration with campus partners including the Camner Center for Academic Resources, Academic Technologies, Writing Center, and Math Lab.


Adobe Library Research Scholars

The Adobe Library Research Scholars Program, inaugurated in 2018, builds on the success of the existing program. Thanks to a generous endowment provided by Adobe Systems Inc., two undergraduate students will be selected each year to serve as Adobe Scholars. The award-winning students will participate actively in the existing program, receive specialized training from experts associated with the Creative Studio, create an audiovisual and/or multimedia intellectual project, and serve as creative consultants to help other UM students maximize the potential of Adobe Creative Cloud and other related tools and software.
