The American Library Association’s (ALA) Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) today released “Progress in the Making: Librarians’ Practical 3D Printing Questions Answered” (pdf). Co-authored by 3DPrint360 CEO Zach Lichaa and ALA Senior Policy Analyst Charlie Wapner, the document poses and answers sixteen practical questions related to establishing 3D printing as a library service. All of the questions were fielded from library professionals interested in 3D printing technology.
“Libraries represent the public on-ramp to the world of 3D printing and design,” said Dan Lee, chair of OITP’s Advisory Committee. “Library professionals who have adopted, or are looking to adopt, a 3D printer must answer questions related to printer operation and maintenance, workflow management, cost recovery, patron safety, and much more. As a by-product of OITP’s policy advocacy on 3D printers and libraries, once again OITP is doing great work for libraries in providing this practical information to assist library professionals.”

“Media literacy is crucial to the educational environment. All students should be able to access, analyze, evaluate and create media in a number of forms, shaping their understanding of how media affects society and why it is essential in the 21st century.In the classroom, media literacy fulfills a number of needs. It helps develop critical thinking skills, identify target markets, recognizes bias and misinformation, and creates the ability to distribute personalized media messages.
