The State of Library Makerspaces

Fangmin Wang, Weina Wang, Sally Wilson, Namir Ahmed

Abstract


In this paper we describe the maker concept, movement and culture and its impact on and relationship with libraries. We provide a comprehensive review of library makerspaces in North America supported by several case studies. We intend this review to be used as a reference resource or tool for libraries planning to implement a new makerspace.
