University of Texas at Austin: “Fine Arts Library Uses University Crowdfunding Site to Fund Recording Studio”

From The Daily Texan:

Beginning in January, students from all departments will be able to record music, podcasts or other audio recordings using a new recording studio in the Fine Arts Library.

The Fine Arts Library will add a recording studio as part of a plan called “The Foundry,” which aims to renovate the Fine Arts Library with more technology. To fund this, the library raised more than $15,000 through HornRaiser, a University crowdfunding platform.


When the library began the campaign in March, it had intended to raise $10,000 to build the recording studio. A month into the campaign, the crowdfunding campaign surpassed the $10,000 goal before the deadline, and the library decided to increase its goal to $15,000.
