C101 Making Libraries: Getting into the Hardware Biz

Monday, April 8, 2013
10:00 AM 10:45 AM
, Head of Library Information Technology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Author, Speaker, Tech Geek

For years, libraries and librarians have been leveraging open source software to extend services to our patrons and staff. We are at a point in the development of low-cost hardware where it is possible that libraries can save significant costs and extend capabilities by embracing open hardware. The growth of the Maker Movement around the country illustrates what is possible in libraries now and what capabilities open hardware may provide us in the future. This presentation discusses the Maker Movement, the different platforms for building custom hardware, and why libraries should not only be paying attention, but actively embracing this next stage of technology.
