Bringing Makers into the Library: Digital Humanities, Hackerspaces, and the new DIY.

Presenter Information

John Fink, McMaster UniversityFollow

Description

As libraries shift away from being content curators to being content creators, and as the communities they serve undergo systemic changes of their own, new opportunities come about for partnerships. In this session, we will explore the rise of makers from both within the academy (digital humanities) and from the broader community (hackerspaces), and discuss issues and opportunities for libraries and library workers to be involved with and make real contributions to these examples of a new DIY culture.
