10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Hands-on Learning and Makerspaces: How to Implement a Culture of Creativity in Your Library! (UMD Library Staff Only)
Core Competencies:  Customer Service / Technology

About This Session:  In the 21st century there has been a resurgence of the DIY movement and many libraries are incorporating makerspaces into their organizations. Creative spaces can encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration and provide an opportunity to bring individuals together who might not otherwise connect with the library. 

This webinar will include a review of makerspaces found in academic and public libraries, as well as provide practical examples of pop-up making spaces. Pop-up making spaces can be a low cost opportunity to create new partnership, as well as an impactful solution to implementing a culture of creativity within your organization.
