Tinkers, Printers & Makers: Makerspaces in the Library

NCompass Live – Recorded on October 30, 2013

Interested in creating a Makerspace in your library? This program will discuss what a Makerspace is, how libraries of all types create and share Makerspaces with library customers and the community and feedback from users. Libraries are a much needed and often used third space, which are ideal for community Makerspaces to collaborate and encourage creativity among all users. There will be gadgets, hands-on demos and group discussion on the nuts & bolts necessary for Makerspace in the library as well as what products should be found in successful Makerspaces. Gordon Wyant will share how his library successfully wrote a grant for a 3D printer, and Michael Sauers will demo a range of new gadgets including a Raspberry Pi and LibraryBox.

Presenters: Marcia Dority Baker, University of Nebraska College of Law Library, Lincoln; Michael Sauers, Nebraska Library Commission; Gordon Wyant, Bellevue Public Library.
