Libraries are known for their books. UNO's Criss Library, with its seemingly endless aisles of literature, is no different. However, there is something that makes the Criss Library stand out from the rest. Not only can students rent media recording devices, they can also produce and edit audio-visual content at the little-known media studio.
The media studio has the hardware, software and production equipment to handle most beginner multimedia projects. Opened part-way through the fall 2012 semester, the studio is still a new addition to the library. Spring 2013 is the first full semester that the studio is open and ready for use, and will be a true test for the fledgling facility.
Monday evening, gunshots fired outside an Omaha grocery store struck and killed a UNO student, marking the city's seventh homicide of 2011.
