Makers Gonna Make: The Rise of Makerspaces in Libraries - CEA

Makers Gonna Make: The Rise of Makerspaces in Libraries - CEA | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

Folks who haven’t spent a lot of time in their local libraries this century might still be under the impression that they are just repositories for musty books and shushing staffers.
 
But library use is on the rise, thanks in part to modern institutions reimagining themselves as places for creating, not just accessing, information. High-speed internet access and public computers are just the tip of the iceberg: Many libraries are now providing their patrons with tools including 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, audiovisual gear, sewing machines and more.
 
A 2013 study by the Information Policy and Access Center at University of Maryland College Park found that nearly 17 percent of public library systems have some kind of makerspace. Clive Thompson’s recent piece in Wired further piqued my interest about the rise of makerspaces in libraries, so I set out to talk to some of the experts in the field.
