Hacking, Making, & Creating at the Library – a webinar

I gave this presentation last week at a webinar for the Southeastern New York Library Resources Council. There were a LOT of great questions afterwards. Lots of libraries are thinking about hackerspaces, makerspaces, etc … and trying to answer the “why” – as in why should we do this? What’s available? What are other libraries doing?

This presentation gave an overview of what’s happening, and also gave some tips on where to start.

Fun times!

    FYI for people interested in this, LITA Forum is going to have a fair amount of maker content. (We’re still finalizing the acceptances so I can’t give you specifics yet, but I can safely guarantee that people who are interested in library makerspaces will find a lot of stuff at Forum that’s worth their while.)
