Session Category :  Round Table Discussion 

Makerspaces are one of the most innovative and dynamic things happening in academic libraries. They can provide a studio for student imagination. A successful makerspace can lead to the physical manifestations of things as wide-ranging as a 3D printed laboratory tool to a cosplay costume. Let’s discuss how to ensure our makerspaces are places of inclusion and creativity through outreach. Participants will be encouraged to share their successes and failures as we all strive to learn from one another.
