Makerspaces: A Visual Perspective

This document discusses makerspaces and how they differ from traditional library learning commons. Makerspaces focus on tools, inventive spirit, problem solving, experimentation, and creativity. They allow learning in a hands-on way and taking it further than traditional libraries. Various types of makerspaces are shown including those in libraries, schools, mobile makerspaces, and more. Makerspaces provide opportunities for arts, robotics, 3D printing, and other projects. Quotes from librarians and students show how makerspaces change the mentality of learning and allow exposure to new technologies in a less restrictive environment than traditional libraries.
