Made in a library (a free online innovation symposium), May 15 2012, 1-3 pm (ET)

Road sign showing library construction

  • What happens when you take a place that has traditionally been about learning and transform it into a place of doing and making? Find out, when we look at how librarians, teachers, students, faculty and communities are turning their focus to creation—whether providing digital tools for game makers, programmers, musicians and authors, or makerspaces for 3-D printing and other “real-life” projects. Join moderator Jason Griffey from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga; Sue Considine and Lauren Britton, who started the Fayetteville (New York) Free Library’s FFL FabLab makerspace; and Joseph Sanchez, currently at the University of Colorado Denver, who incorporated a variety of “doing” spaces into the Red Rocks Community College Library—saving it from closure in the process.
