Session Title

Sustaining an Academic Makerspace

Description

Makerspaces have become more and more common in academic libraries, but what does it take for one to be sustainable in the long-term? In this session, we’ll discuss how we’ve learned to adapt to the changing needs of our campus, how we've worked with students to create meaningful rules and regulations, and how we’ve been working to establish a campus-wide presence and make lasting connections with faculty and students. We’ll also explore some of the ways makerspaces can enhance student success. Attendees are welcome to share their successes and challenges with academic makerspaces.
