  3. 3. Library makerspace? Makerspaces or FabLabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more.

  6. 6. Lawrence Lessig “The importance is that technique has been democratized. These tools of creativity have become tools of speech. It is a literacy for this generation. This is how our kids speak. It is how our kids think. It is what your kids are as they increasingly understand digital technologies and their relationship to themselves.”

  13. 13. Cory Doctorow “Damn right libraries shouldn’t be book-lined Internet cafes. They should be book-lined, computer- filled information-dojos where communities come together to teach each other black-belt information literacy, where initiates work alongside noviates to show them how to master the tools of the networked age from the bare metal up.”
  14. 14. David Lankes “The mission of librarians is to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities”

  32. 32. Aims of Task Force Public Libraries The Task Force set out to develop a basis for establishing a sustained and productive relationship between Europeana and Europe’s rapidly evolving public libraries – especially in the digital field - building on the work done in Europeana Awareness and taking into account the conclusions reached in the evaluation of that work. In particular, the Task Force has noted that Europeana HQ supports the role of this institutional sector but does not consider itself resourced to prioritise specific actions on its behalf. Task Force Public Libraries
  33. 33. Task Force Public Libraries Key aspects of the research conducted by the Task Force have addressed how to: ★ Exploit the growing trend toward the provision of creative Makerspaces, Media labs and similar ‘doer’ initiatives in public libraries fo creative re-use of Europeana and other digital content, leading to coordination of a proposal for a network initiative to the Creative Europe programme in Autumn 2016; ★ Nurture the pervasive and widespread coverage of Europe’s 50,000 public libraries to increase representation in Europeana of locali throughout Europe, by improving the delivery of metadata from smaller local cultural institutions and through ongoing thematic collection of User Generated Content. This will build on previous work in projects such as Europeana Local, LoCloud and Europeana Awareness; ★ Design and deliver affordable tools and applications for public libraries to achieve the above and how an infrastructure can be create their reliable maintenance, building on several strands of existing work; ★ Establish a fit-for-purpose coordination and governance model for the continuation of the library network established in Europeana Awareness in order to achieve the above goals.
