  • Why do maker spaces belong in libraries?Westport's observation that their patrons interactions with the library were changing- people arriving to programs earlier and staying later, they are forming their own groups-- the library was becoming a platform for learning -- Westport created the conditions where these sorts of interactions are possible."From collections to connections" David Lankes          Bad libraries build collections, good libraries build services, great libraries build communitiesThese trends reflect our society's move toward participatory culture -- shift away for passively consuming knowledge to becoming active participants in the creation of new knowledge by making things (even if they're only contributing to a kickstarter project)
  • This is our new vision statement developed along with a new strategic plan. We think there’s most certainly a place for maker culture in our library.

    1. 1. Towards a Makerspace Presented by Edward Iglesias Systems LibrarianCentral Connecticut State University
    2. 2. What is it?• “Makerspaces organize tools, materials and expertise to help a community of people work on projects” – What Makes a Maker Space Panel Discussion on Make: Live Stage at World Maker Faire 2012 • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFIyQ9SBeWU
    3. 3. What is it? Continued
    4. 4. Libraries are Aware• LITA Forum 2013 Call for Proposals• Possible ideas for topics might include:• Maker spaces/Maker Movement – Creation of New Library Spaces – Data Curation – Discovery – User Experience – Web Services – Coding – Digital Libraries – Institutional Repositories » http://www.ala.org/lita/conferences/forum/2013
    5. 5. Makerspace event helpskick off U.S. Departmentof Education bus touracross AmericaThe MENTOR Makerspaceprogram has a goal ofintroducing low-costmakerspaces into 1,000high schools over the nextthree years. It will provideinformation and trainingfor teachers along withsoftware design tools andhardware for use in aschool environment. Thefirst round of 10 pilotschools are located inNorthern California.
    6. 6. In other words
    7. 7. Why?“From collections to connections”– David Lankes
    8. 8. “It from Bit”• “Otherwise put, every it – every particle, every field of force, even the spacetime continuum itself – derives its function, its meaning, its very existence entirely – even if in some contexts indirectly – from the apparatus-elicited answers to yes-or-no questions, binary choices, bits.• It from bit symbolizes the idea that every item of the physical world has at bottom – at a very deep bottom, in most instances – an immaterial source and explanation; that which we call reality arises in the last analysis from the posing of yes-no questions and the registering of equipment-evoked responses; in short, that all things physical are information-theoretic in origin and this is a participatory universe.”---John Archibald Wheeler
    9. 9. Space for Creation, Not Just ConsumptionMaker spaces promote learning through play;have the potential to demystify science, math,technology, and engineering; and encouragewomen and under-represented minorities toseek careers in those fields. – http://www.thedigitalshift.com/2012/10/public-services/the- makings-of-maker-spaces-part-1-space-for-creation-not-just- consumption/
    10. 10. A Maker Space and CCSU Library’s Strategic DirectionA new 21st century mission: “The Elihu Burritt Library … satisfies the 21st century learning and research needs of its community of learners by facilitating knowledge creation, inspiring intellectual curiosity and lifelong learning.”
    11. 11. So You Wanna Build a Makerspace?
    12. 12. What Fayetteville has
    13. 13. De La Mare(University of Nevada, Reno)• 2 3D printers, a 3D scanner• 2 button makers,• about a dozen arduino kits, soldering kits,• AR Drones• Weve converted a lot of the space that once held books to make room for collaborative space and entire walls painted in whiteboard paint.• Weve held a lockpicking workshop in partnership with Renos local• makerspace, Bridgewire: http://www.renobridgewire.org/, here in the library where over 80 people attended. We worked with them to offer a student membership as well.
    14. 14. Things to Keep in Mind• Do your users want it?• Where will you put it?• Noise?• Power?

    25. 25. Staples to Offer In-Store 3D Printing• Soon, Staples customers will be able to peruse office supplies while waiting for their 3D project to be printed.• The big-box store announced this week that its Printing Systems Division will work with Mcor Technologies Ltd. to launch a new 3D printing service, dubbed "Staples Easy 3D."• The program, however, will initially only have limited availability in the Netherlands and Belgium – http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2412697,00.asp
