Makerspaces : a practical guide for librarians


Makerspaces are a growing service in libraries. They are places to invent, tinker, build, and explore; access to the tools and equipment fosters a spirit of creativity and the pursuit of knowledge. Burke and Kroski profile successful library makerspaces, and help readers spot new trends, offer inspiration, and find grant and funding sources.
