MRU Library

New faces and expertise in the Library – Maker studio and Visualization spaces

With some of our new spaces in the Library we have also added new staff with matching expertise.

Maker studio

The Maker Studio is a creative space for students, faculty and community users to experiment with new technologies and tools to tackle projects and explore ideas and concepts in a hands-on way. Users from the MRU community can design objects and creations for their research, coursework, or personal projects. Currently located in EL 1355, we looking forward to having the larger Maker Studio (EL 1245) completed by January 2018.
