Center for Information Management (CIM): Home


The Center for Information Management (CIM) is a staffed computer lab on the first floor of King Library, room 112. Our services are available to all Miami University students, faculty, and staff. We have high-end software for video production, 2D and 3D design, website building, and digitization. We also have the equipment for three-dimensional printing, audio and visual recording, high resolution scanning, and analog-to-digital conversion projects.

We compliment our facilities with students and staff trained to teach even beginners how to build professional multimedia projects of all kinds. Come in with your questions, your projects, your great-grandmother's family photos or schedule an instruction session for your class - we can help.
