The public library has a mission to serve different patron groups. The academic library has a mission to support student success, including via high impact practices such as collaborative learning, and community involvement. Each library is exploring what “makerspace” means for our patrons. As part of that process, we’re identifying opportunities for college students to participate in makerspace initiatives off-campus, and bring their expertise back to campus. We are discussing technology needs, ways to promote new initiatives, teaching opportunities, and other aspects of growing maker culture. This interactive discussion will be a conversation about planning, what works, challenges and aspirations.
