  • Joke: seems like the next slide ought to say something like “Oh no!”--- <br /> <br /> /CIL2014-D102 – Makerspaces in Academic Libraries Title slide: include hashtag #MAL , link to preso on SlideShareMonday, April 7, 2014 11:45 AM – 12:30 PM
  • Space is shifting from infrastructure to engagement.Lorcan Dempsey of OCLC noted how “space is being reconfigured around broader education and research needs, and less around the management of print collection.
  • Scientists, engineers, artists, … are makers. Is the library their space, or ours?Space is shifting from infrastructure to engagement.Lorcan Dempsey of OCLC noted how “space is being reconfigured around broader education and research needs, and less around the management of print collection.
  • Geek the library.Passion!
  • What’s different? We’re expanding the types of making that go on within the physical library – leveraging the ability to engage/broaden meet our customers’ needs.

  • It may be that the best way to show you what makerspace can be in an academic library is to show you some examples from our experience
  • Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer.It&apos;s an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board.
  • Also handy. “Hydration is key when hacking.” ;-)
  • To be effective, as librarians we need to break through the “third wall”.
  • Cross-disciplinary!
  • By show of hands, who’s here from the public library side of librarianship? Academic? Wow – brave.Seems to imply that the natural mechanisms of the library aren’t sufficing anymore
  • I’m not sure how you can support innovation without doing innovative things.

  • so… what’s “makerspace”?
  • so… what’s “makerspace”? i. space for makers.
  • so… what’s “makerspace”? i. space for makers. ii. wherever “making” happens and is actively supported/encouraged.
  • space for "makers”!
  • space for "makers”! • a natural given the transition toward electronic materials and increasingly specialized - as opposed to identical – collections.
  • • a natural given the transition toward electronic materials and increasingly specialized - as opposed to identical – collections. • makers make… books. papers. knowledge. sense. meals. clothing. apps. doghouses. robots. … The library has traditionally supported all of these, and more. space for "makers”!
  • makers…
  • makers’ space!
  • maker event a week ago last Saturday: Arduino Day!
  • more lendable technology:
  • so… baby steps toward makerspace in an academic library?
  • whiteboard wall paint + surplus furniture. nstant ad-hoc collaboration areas!
  • engagement with learning…
  • magnets for collaborative learning…
  • - rolling whiteboards even the occasional hackathon!
  • even the occasional hackathon!
  • this weekend:
  • this weekend:
  • a particularly cool challenge:
  • 3d printing and scanning – raw stuff of learning and innovation.
  • Anthropology 5% Art 11% Biochemistry 11% Biomedical Engineering 8% Ag, Biotech, Natural Resources 2%Chemistry 3% Business 3% Economics 3% Electrical Engineering 5% Mechanical Engineering 46% Natural Resources & Environmental Science 3% 3d printer usage:
  • while I was on my way to this conference, at the DeLaMare Library…
  • they got to 3d-scan a frozen iguana!
  • So… wow. “Hack the Library”!
  • problems and concerns you might run into:
  • - "The library's supposed to be a quiet place.”
  • - "The library's supposed to be a quiet place.” - "I don't have the room.”
  • - "The library's supposed to be a quiet place.” - "I don't have the room.” Note Westport Public Library’s approach: Image credit: http://www.thedigitalshift.com/2012/10/public-services/the-makings-of-maker-spaces-part-1-space-for-creation-not-just-consumption/
  • - "That's not what libraries do.”
  • - "That's not what libraries do.” - what, buy sometimes expensive resources and share them for the good of all? ;-)
  • - “But tools are dangerous! What about liability?”

  • Thank You. Questions?
