What is the Makerspace?

  • Makerspace is a catch all term to refer to a service that offers equipment that enables the creation or fabrication of prototypes of designs or customized “parts”.
  • The vision for the Walker Library makerspace service is to provide an active-learning experience for students to use technology as a tool and to make it accessible to students of every level of technical expertise.  
  • The mission is creation across disciplines.
  • Research libraries with a makerspace learning area have found them to be instrumental in support of the STEAM (science, technology, engineering Arts and Math) initiatives.
