We are excited to share that the Maker Studio will move into its permanent space this week!
Library staff members are packing boxes and arranging furniture to move the Maker Studio down the hall to EL1245 (behind the Service Desk). The larger and central space on the main floor of the RLLC will allow us to showcase even more cutting edge equipment and accommodate way more students, faculty, staff, and community members. We’re already working on programming for workshops that will allow attendees to learn a new skill and try out some of the latest design software.
The Maker Studio will be closed June 13 and 14 to allow for the move. Your patience is appreciated. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the new studio.
With some of our new spaces in the Library we have also added new staff with matching expertise.
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.
