Concept and Purpose

The Buley Makerspace and the Maker Collection are library space and material resources that are intended to be used for cross-disciplinary collaboration to design, imagine, build and problem solve, and provide an experiential research and learning platform to be used by 

  • SCSU students, faculty, and community partners
  • Outreach programs focused on learning and exploration for K-12 students in greater New Haven
  • Practicum experience teaching by SCSU education and library science students

It provides a collaborative environment for unstructured exploration of emerging technologies and promotes a creative maker community, supporting and enhancing the university curriculum. It provides practicum experience opportunities for pre-service education and library science students and in service training opportunities for area teachers and educators. A collection of onsite “maker” equipment and lendable kits compliments the Makerspace site. The collection is evaluated and updated on a regular basis.
