Supporting Makerspace Literacies in the Library

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 3:00pm


Makerspaces continue to become increasingly prevelant within libraries allowing for a variety of active learning and discovery opportunities. Yet, along with exciting new equipment and resources, new literacies and subsequently, deficiencies in those literacies, are appearing. In order to fully ulitize the potential of the makerspace patrons must acquire literacies beyond information including 3D modeling, design, computational, and tactile literacies.

This webinar will focus on how one academic library has been utilizing expert student employees, online point of need resources, and repurposing the traditional reference interaction to teach these new literacies and encourage deeper use of the makerspace.
