What is the Makerspace?


The Makerspace is a service provided by the Hilton C. Buley University Library to support learning, creativity, and exploration in a rapidly changing technology environment. We are a makerspace which encourages makers or aspiring-makers to take an idea and make something from it.

The Library's exploration in Makerspaces began in 2015 with the acquisition of a 3D printer and some electronic kits. We are grateful to Cindy Schofield, former Head of Technical Services in Buley Library, who founded and established this project.
