Tour of the Library:
The University Library faculty works to integrate information literacy into the University's curriculum by developing students' core competencies in information literacy and critical thinking.
The Library Instruction Program and Services page provides information about how librarians can collaborate with you to improve the research skills of your students.
You can also contact the librarian assigned to your program.
The Digital Media Studio (DMS) is an open multimedia lab for the Appalachian State University campus. The purpose of the DMS is to provide access to current software and hardware, but most of all we provide help using digital media tools and technologies.
The Tech Desk allows patrons to check out digital equipment and accessories for personal use. Also, media conversion, a 3D printer, and large-format printing.
A makerspace is a place where users of all skill levels can come together to bring their ideas to life by “making” things. Students, faculty and staff at Appalachian State University will be able to use the space to access tools, learn new skills, and create things both for academic and personal use. A variety of workshops will be provided for those who want to learn more about our maker options.
DSI engages and partners with Appalachian faculty members, students, library colleagues, and the community to support new scholarship in a rapidly changing digital landscape. DSI provides and sustains innovative digital tools and publishing platforms for content delivery, discovery, analysis, data curation, and preservation.
