Graduate Student Pursues Interdisciplinary Projects at Libraries' Multimedia Resource Center

ImageAs a previous UCI undergraduate student and a current graduate student at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering, I have benefitted greatly from the resources at the UCI Libraries, and in particular, the Multimedia Resource Center (MRC). The UCI Libraries have a plethora of materials to help students, including myself, complete homework assignments, projects, or research to the highest degree of excellency.

With the resources offered at the MRC, I have been able to complete projects in a professional environment and to have access to many creative outlets and tools. The MRC allows students to have a safe, quiet, and comfortable environment to successfully complete their studies in. The MRC's 3D printing program has given students like me a chance to have access to previously inaccessible technologies. This has, in turn, helped me pursue creative and interdisciplinary projects which I would not have been able pursue previously.

As an engineering student, the 3D printing program has allowed me to design and model my own pieces to be used in both my personal and academic endeavors. This resource has allowed me to further develop my knowledge, not only in the quickly developing 3D printing field, but also in the field of my studies. Overall, I feel that the UCI Libraries greatly help in furthering our education and giving us new avenues to explore both personally and academically that we would not have had access to before, and I hope they continue to offer such resources and benefit their students in this extremely positive way.
