The One Button Studio (OBS) is a simple, easy to use video recording lab located at Addlestone Library, Room 136, adjacent to the Circulation Desk. The Studio is equipped with lights, audio, and cameras and can be used by College of Charleston students, faculty, and staff to practice and record presentations without video production experience.


The One Button Studio can also be reserved for podcasting and audio recording. A Blue Yeti USB Microphone is available for checkout at the Circulation Desk and GarageBand audio editing software is available.


The One Button Studio was brought to you in part by donor support. Click here to learn more about the impact philanthropy makes at your College of Charleston Libraries.

The Addlestone Library, in partnership with Academic Affairs and the Teaching, Learning and Technology (TLT) department, sponsors an iPad program to provide members of our campus community access to a technologically rich environment that encourages technology literacy, information literacy and collaborative learning.


Faculty may request these iPads for students to check out and use for up to 3 weeks, as a tool to enhance student learning in their course. Each student and faculty member will check out and return the iPad and peripherals at the Circulation Desk at Addlestone Library. We will have specific blocks for iPad use so please indicate block preferences: Feb 8th - Mar 1st, Mar 4th – Mar 29th, Apr 3rd – April 24th.


If you would like to discuss your proposal or talk about how you might most effectively use iPads in your course, please contact Jolanda-Pieta (Joey) van Arnhem (vanarnhemj@cofc.edu).
