Makerspaces in Practice: Successful Models for Implementation

Makerspaces in Practice: Successful Models for Implementation JOURNAL OF ACCESS SERVICES REVIEWS AND REMARKS Makerspaces in Practice: Successful Models for Implementation, edited by Ellyssa Kroski, Chicago: ALA Editions, 2021. The concept of library makerspaces is not new. Over the past decade, numerous pub- lic, academic, and K-12 libraries have implemented makerspace programs at their insti- tutions to foster patron learning, imagination, innovation, creation, and collaboration. While facilitating such programs has afforded libraries valuable opportunities to part- ner and engage with their users, deciding which makerspace initiatives to invest in can be particularly challenging given both the variety of options available and funding, staffing, and logistical considerations. In a compilation of essays from institutions with practical makerspace experience, Kroski’s Makerspaces in Practice: Successful Models for Implementation serves as a handbook not only for those libraries considering implementing new makerspace pro- grams but those with active programs as well. Derived from public, academic, and K- 12 libraries, contributions provide perspectives on numerous topics related to a variety of makerspace endeavors to aid libraries in strategizing their makerspace decisions. The book begins with a discussion of the history of library makerspaces and how makerspace programs have evolved since 2010.

Abstract

JOURNAL OF ACCESS SERVICES REVIEWS AND REMARKS Makerspaces in Practice: Successful Models for Implementation, edited by Ellyssa Kroski, Chicago: ALA Editions, 2021. The concept of library makerspaces is not new. Over the past decade, numerous pub- lic, academic, and K-12 libraries have implemented makerspace programs at their insti- tutions to foster patron learning, imagination, innovation, creation, and collaboration. While facilitating such programs has afforded libraries valuable opportunities to part- ner and engage with their users, deciding which makerspace initiatives to invest in can be particularly challenging given both the variety of options available and funding, staffing, and logistical considerations. In a compilation of essays from institutions with practical makerspace experience, Kroski’s Makerspaces in Practice: Successful Models for Implementation serves as a handbook not only for those libraries considering implementing new makerspace pro- grams but those with active programs as well. Derived from public, academic, and K- 12 libraries, contributions provide perspectives on numerous topics related to a variety of makerspace endeavors to aid libraries in strategizing their makerspace decisions. The book begins with a discussion of the history of library makerspaces and how makerspace programs have evolved since 2010. Included in this section are details con- cerning current percentages
