Summer may be conference season, but we have one more conference coming up in the fall that we want to make sure is on your calendar. The Library 2.017: Makerspaces web conference will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Wednesday, October 11.
Join the San Jose State University School of Information and our collaborators for this inspiring conversation about makerspaces in libraries. You’ll be sure to get some new ideas and come away energized. The conference is free to attend. Register now!
Abstract: Makerspaces are popping up at libraries more and more these days. The creative outlets for tinkering, collaborating, problem solving, and learning provide a new dynamic for library services. Just like the individual projects made, no two library makerspaces are the same. During this free web conference, attendees will investigate how library makerspaces can foster community partnerships and provide a space for patrons to innovate through hands-on learning.
Please consider sharing your ideas and experiences utilizing makerspaces to deliver services to your community. Crowdsourced presentations will be accepted until September 20 or when session slots are full. Please visit the conference website for the Call for Proposals.
Library 2.017: Makerspaces is the third and final conference for 2017, and is organized by the SJSU School of Information and The Learning Revolution in collaboration with Heather Moorefield-Lang. Visit the Library 2.0 website for more information about the Library 2.017 web conferences, as well as archives of past conferences.
