The ncLibraries Exploratory is a digital media lab and makerspace for current Niagara College students, faculty, and staff to access various types of technology and software that you might not otherwise have the opportunity to explore; you don't need to have any idea how to use the software or equipment, this is your opportunity to play!
The Exploratory contains software and equipment for filming videos, recording audio, editing videos, designing graphics, virtual reality headsets, and equipment for creating marketing material and prototypes including a 3D printer, button maker, and Cricut machine.
Current Niagara College students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use the Exploratory for class-related projects or for independent supplementary experimentation and learning.
Possible uses for the Exploratory include:
ncLibraries has an Exploratory at both campuses. At the Welland Campus Library + Learning Commons, the Exploratory is located on the second floor of the library, behind the stacks. At the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus Library + Learning Commons the Exploratory is located in the hallway behind the ITS Help Desk.
