Abstract (Document Summary)

In fall 2016, Cline Library at Northern Arizona University (NAU) opened its MakerLab, a makerspace focused on 3D printing, scanning, and electronic prototyping. Designated as the first MakerBot Innovation Center in the western US, the MakerLab includes 20 3D printers, plus 3D scanners and electronic prototyping kits. It is the first largescale, public 3D printing service in northern Arizona. The authors will share why and how they built the MakerLab. More importantly, they will show how they built partnerships to make the project successful and convey some lessons we learned that can help you launch a successful technology project in your library. NAU serves more than 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students, with 22,000-plus on the Flagstaff campus and the rest served via a variety of distance and online programs. Recognized as a technology leader on campus, Cline Library is a hub of learning and collaboration. Their building and online services are heavily used by students and faculty.
