D102 – Makerspaces in Academic Libraries
Monday, April 7, 2014
11:45 AM – 12:30 PM
Systems Librarian, ERIS, Central Connecticut State University
While makerspaces have taken off in public libraries, the movement is expanding to the academic environment. Colegrove talks about the programs in his library: 24-hour hackathons, WordPress bootcamps, whiteboard walls, lockpicking workshops, 3D printing, robotics toolkits, and more! There are different pressures and concerns. Iglesias discusses building community and establishing partnerships, required competencies and skillsets for staff, and practical concerns in the physical plant.
