Facilities and Equipment


COHDS has a wide range of digital tools and equipment available for the use of affiliated  researchers and  projects, as well as students enrolled in “embedded courses” taught by faculty affiliates. COHDS is equipped with a broad range of audio and video recording equipment, still cameras, digital projectors, and transcription pedals. These can be reserved and borrowed by affiliates for free. However, affiliates are responsible for the equipment and must return it as agreed upon so others are not inconvenienced. 
The lab is equipped with both  PC and MAC workstations, with the requisite software for beginners as well as professionals authoring in video and sound. We provide lab support to affiliates during posted hours. Affiliated members may also book the COHDS meeting space (known as the 'blue room'), the training lab, or interview room on a first come first serve basis.
