Leanne Nay, Scholarly Technologies Librarian, Reference Services

In recent years, the “maker movement” has gained serious traction in higher education. Makerspaces, fab labs, and hackerspaces are popping up in universities and libraries around the world, including Indiana University. In this talk, Leanne Nay, Scholarly Technologies Librarian, will share an overview of makerspaces and services available to the IU community. Join us to learn more about the challenges and opportunities of these initiatives, as well as the library’s role in supporting a culture of creativity and making.

This presentation is part of the ongoing Digital Library Brown Bag Series. Follow and contribute to the presentations and discussions on twitter: #dlbb.
