Makerspaces in Health Sciences Libraries – collaborations, 3D printing and more…

The Ruth Lilly Medical Library’s makerspace and collaborative learning space opened in the spring of 2015 featuring movable furniture (12 tables, 24 chairs, and soft seating for 4), two media:scapes, and a library staff work area.   A small office in the Nexus houses the Library’s 3D printers.  Currently, the Nexus is closed for the installation of an IQ Wall.   The IQ Wall (interactive video wall) is designed by and will be installed by the Indiana University Advanced Visualization Lab.  At MLA, we heard about cool makerspaces and collaborative learning areas in health sciences libraries and we are looking forward to learning new things and exchanging ideas.  Please join us for this Twitter chat, no makerspace required!

Some questions we'll discuss:
  1. What would make your makerspace?   
  2. What would your library do with an interactive video wall?
