The Graduate Center launched the New Media Lab in 1997 as a major effort to develop and improve new educational technologies at The City University of New York. The Lab assists faculty and doctoral students from a variety of academic disciplines to create multimedia projects based on their own scholarly research. Lab projects integrate digital technologies into traditional academic practice, challenging scholars to develop fresh questions in their respective fields using the tools of new technology. Based at the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning, the New Media Lab contains state-of-the-art hardware and software and is committed to a vision of new technology based on open access to ideas, tools, and resources.
