Hacking, Making, & Creating - at the Library! Technology Innovations & Customer Created Content
Presented by renowned librarian/author/blogger David Lee King
Tuesday, September 24, 2013 from 1:30 pm - 3:00 p.m.
Traditionally, when our library customers wanted to make something, we’d send them to the craft section or to the “how to write a poem” section of the library. Today’s makers want to make gadgets, 3D-printed prototypes, and a video series. And guess what? They want the library’s help!
In this webinar, renowned librarian/author/blogger David Lee King provides an overview of technology innovations that focus on “making” – including hackerspaces, digital media labs, co-working spaces, and self-publishing tools, and provides ideas on how to incorporate these innovations into your library.
