This Is Auburn Auburn University Libraries Adobe Creative Space

Adobe Creative Space

The Adobe Creative Space of the Innovation & Research Commons is an open-access learning space for Auburn students, faculty, and staff dedicated to providing Auburn students with digital creation skills and technology. This area, as well as online resources here, promote the digital literacy of our students to encourage their success both in their coursework and in their careers. Creative co-working space is available in the Adobe Creative Space on a first-come first-serve basis with priority given to users actively working in Adobe Creative Cloud. University COVID guidelines must be followed when using the Adobe Creative Space.
