The Case for a Campus Makerspace

Here is a (rough) transcript of my talk today at the ELI Annual Meeting in Denver. I've also Storified some of the tweets from the session and included a link to my slidedeck. Special thanks to Jentery Sayers (UVic) and Tim Owens (UMW) for the use of their photos from their respective campus makerspaces.

John Shank's comment, February 14, 2013 12:05 PM
Great question! I thought of the term as I was reading the above article this morning and did a quick Google search and did not find any relevant uses of the word. Although, I am thinking the term Creatorium might work better and sound better. The basic meaning behind the word is similar to the terms imaginarium or exploratorium. With a twist instead of only inspiring imagination and exploration let enable creation of ideas, tools, and products digital and physical. The library could become a community hub or nexus for innovators, educators, and inventors taking data,information, and knowledge then using tools provided by the library to create or turn their ideas into books, videos, and now with 3D printers create models and working products.
