More About Makerspaces by John J. Burke
 
 
 
Overview
A makerspace is an area in a library where users can use tools and equipment to design, build, and create all sorts of different things. It may be a dedicated room or a multipurpose space into which a collection of raw materials and resources can be utilized as desired. Projects range from prototyping product designs with 3D printers to programming robots to creating art out of recycled items. This book will help librarians develop and implement makerspaces, write grant proposals to fund such spaces, and help front line staff and administrators learn about the technologies and processes involved. Makerspaces: A Practical Guide for Librarians is aimed at assisting librarians in public, academic, and school libraries to build and grow DIY (do-it-yourself) spaces opportunities in their libraries. Understand the mindset behind the maker movement, learn how to assess patron needs, and create a budget for and equip your own space. The book will provide useful case studies, descriptions of technology, and models for planning and assessing makerspace projects.
