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.”

Note Westport Public Library’s approach:

- "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? ;-)

about liability?”

  • Joke: seems like the next slide ought to say something like “Oh no!”---

  • 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'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.

    5. 5. space for "makers”!
    6. 6. space for "makers”! • a natural given the transition toward electronic materials and increasingly specialized - as opposed to identical – collections.
    7. 7. • 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”!
