What's a makerspace and why should libraries care?

  1. 1. What’s a makerspace and why should libraries care? Tod Colegrove, Ph.D., MSLIS Head of DeLaMare Science & Engineering Library University of Nevada, Reno Slides at: http://slidesha.re/1i9tR0n
  2. 2. currently provide makerspace or maker activities through their libraries 40% planning to start makerspaces in the near future 36% neither currently providing makerspace nor planning to do so 24% "Makerspaces in Libraries" Study, John Burke, Dec 2013 - of 143 librarians surveyed:

  6. 6. From molecules to dinosaurs in the desert…
  7. 7. “Our biggest challenge – and the biggest opportunity for the Maker Movement – is an ambitious one: to transform education.” – makerspace playbook
  8. 8. Let’s talk about 3D printers: hardware selection & maintenance. • What should I be looking at and thinking about when considering a 3D printer purchase? • Is ongoing maintenance a big deal?

  12. 12. Talk to the communities supported by your library. What does the need look like?
  13. 13. Will you need to be able to print • “real” parts? That is, that can be dropped, drilled, machined? • interconnected moving assemblies? • metal parts? ABS plastic? • in multiple colors? Simultaneously? • big parts? How big?
  14. 14. Any special environmental health and safety concerns?
  15. 15. Fact: no 3D printer does it all.
  16. 16. Do your homework: • Explore vendor options/literature in depth – inform ongoing conversations. • Differentiate between open source, hobbyist, DIY systems and commercial/production equipment
  17. 17. Do your homework: • What’s the cost of print materials? • Go hands-on with the equipment at trade shows or other makerspaces. Would they make the same choices again? Why or why not? • How extensive is the ongoing day-to- day support of the equipment?
