Makerspace : What is the Makerspace?

About the library makerspace

https://libapps-eu.s3.amazonaws.com/accounts/138420/images/Makerspace_General.jpgThe Glucksman Library Makerspace is available to all UL students, faculty, and staff to use for free, for academic or personal projects.

The library makerspace forms part of the Library Digital Edge and is a collaborative and dynamic space where people experiment, innovate, create, fail and start over again. 

The makerspace offers in-house access to a range of emerging technologies and tools, which include 3D printers, a 3D scanner, Cricut Maker & heat press, Arduino and MaKey MaKey.  In addition to the free in-house resources, we will very soon offer an extensive list of loanable equipment such as gimbals, 360-degree cameras, v-logging kits, voice recorders, tripods and much more, all of which will be available to borrow at no charge, and take home.  We look forward to welcoming you into the space.
