Makerspaces allow people to create and learn in a supportive environment and are growing in popularity. Hear how university libraries across the UK are creating different types of makerspace to support the hands-on learning of their wider academic communities. In particular learn how the University of Sussex Library addressed increasing pressure on space, resources and expenditure by successfully running two temporary ‘pop-up’ makerspaces. The session will finish with a quick hands-on maker project for attendees to undertake.
