Story Labs

Library & Information Technology Services offers two Story Labs for audio recording and podcast production. Located on level 1 at LITS 122 and LITS 124, each studio is equipped with recording equipment and a computer with a variety of editing software. LITS 122 has a 2-person capacity and LITS 124 has a 1-person capacity. Each lab includes instructions for first-time users, so no previous experience is required to use the space.

To protect the equipment, we limit the use of the space to audio recording and editing only. The story labs are not available as study space.   

Here is how to access the story labs:

Staff: Reserve time in a studio here and use your id to access the studios  


  • LITS 124 is available for students working on a class project for 2-hour windows with 24-hour access. Reservation required. Make a reservation here. Your card will give you 24-hour access to the lab.  
  • LITS 122 is available for all students for 2-hour windows during Library and IT Desk hours. Reservation required. Make a reservation here. Check out an access card at the Library and IT desk and return it after use.  

Note: Faculty offering a podcasting or audio recording assignment can apply for semester-long automatic student access for their classes to use LITS 124.
