  • Add images
  • More images
  • Include Tod’s graph here about who used the printer in its first year
  • Bringing faculty back to the library. Picture of robotic arm and chemical structure. Talk about mathematics professor, chemical engineering apparatus, president and provost. More businesses coming out or our library than anywhere else in northern nevada. Needed to get trained on the patent and trademark processes.
  • Include various images of 3D printed objects
  • Makeys makeys, arduinos, rasberry pis
  • Large format scanners and printers, lego mind storm robotics kits
  • Oculus rift, razer hydra, google glass
  • Soldering Kits, engineering tool kits
  • Laser cutter, cnc milling machine for circuit board prototyping, z 3D printer, high end 3D scanners
  • Makermobile / co-producing mini-maker faire this weekend
  • DeLaMare Library: transforming & combining an academic library and makerspace
