The Arnold Library, in the Weintraub building, hosts the Shared Resources Computer Lab.   The 24/7-accessible facility offers FHCRC researchers and students access to PCs and Macs installed with software for data analysis and visualization, image and text editing, and video production.  (FlowJo, GeneMapper, Aperio Imagescope, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere & more).  See the complete list of software.

A National Library of Medicine Technology Improvement Award to the library funded facility and resource improvements - improving ergonomics, space utilization, and opportunities for collaboration.  The computer lab furniture was replaced and a simple space to host video shoots for scholarly teaching and communications purposes was developed.  

A pass-through room on the second floor of the library (1M level) has been modestly transformed into a small and informal ‘studio’ dedicated to filming videos.  Specifically, the room has a whiteboard, optional background drapery and seating, and acoustic tiles for sound control.  The studio is suitable for filming 1 person at the whiteboard or 2 people for seated interviews.  A dedicated video editing Mac workstation, with a copy of Adobe Premiere, is also available.      


Contact the library at 206-667-4314 or to reserve the video room.  The computer lab is available 24/7 to all FHCRC badge holders.
