Resources WORK SPACE
Do you have a project and need workspace? OECD/JumpstartCentral (MU011) has a conference room equipped with a large flat screen and camera that are great for web conferences, meeting notes, or brainstorming ideas. We also have a media studio with a fast PC, HD video cameras, a great DSLR camera, mics, etc. Student groups are especially welcome!

Resources RESOURCES
Did you know that there are multiple d-bases full of job opportunities through the "Resources" tab of the OECD Website? We also have a library of excellent documents on how to apply for teaching positions, apply to graduate schools, start your own studio, start your own business, become an entrepreneurial musician, and much more. Feel free to pop in to MU011 any time to check out the space and share your ideas.

Thinking about funding for graduate school? Remember, the Grad Grants Center consultants are available to answer questions about funding opportunities, mechanics of grant-writing, and internal (IU) funding opportunities during weekly office and walk-in hours as well as regular workshops.
