Anita Grover MD '74 and Tom Hargrove P'14 Digital Learning and Media Center The Digital Learning and Media Center (DLMC)
opened in September 2012 on level five of the library. It is a highly visible, open learning space that can be used as a collaborative studio, a formal classroom, a computer lab, a showcase for student work, and a hub for media equipment use and lending.
The president's office
has identified technology as one of the eight essential issues that Colgate’s strategic plan will address. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni
, the DLMC will demonstrate Colgate’s commitment to keeping pace with communications in the 21st century by providing the ability to engage in curricular explorations beyond text-based inquiry.
With more than 20 Macintosh workstations loaded with media-editing software, the facility will be staffed with knowledgeable student media consultants during school year from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., offering one-on-one assistance to students, faculty, and staff in the use of media creation hardware and software.

with the ability to display the sky showing planets, constellations, and other astronomical objects. In addition, the digital projector allows us to project 3D animations and shows made for an immersive dome environment.
There are several public workstations located in the Learning Commons on the fifth floor of the library. Three scanning stations are near the DLMC entrance.
There are several media suites located on the second floor of the library. This area is for use by digital media group staff that includes students working as video journalists and interns from other institutions. The second floor suite is also the location of the office of Rich Grant, technical director of the digital media group.
