Despite traditional/conservative academic library roots on the campus of the UNR, the DeLaMare Science & Engineering Library is partnering with broader community- based "maker" and "coworking" groups in the Northern Nevada area, actively revolutionizing the levels of student and faculty engagement with the library. From hacknights and Arduino microcontroller workshops to concrete canoes and Rube Goldberg Machine competitions, the library is actively building connections and conversations. UNR Libraries is leveraging engaged participants to take the library beyond a collections-based hotbed of student learning and collaboration to being an engine of innova- tion transforming learning experiences at UNR. Hear gritty details of rapid prototyping, what’s working, what’s failed, and the reception of 3D printers and scanners in the library.
