In 2014 the MLIS Program at St. Catherine University offered a new course called “Content Creation” to introduce MLIS students to the maker movement and DIY culture. In addition to discussing the broader implications of the maker movement in libraries, students explored different technologies/tools and embarked on their own creative projects. Join us for an informal show-and-tell of some of the maker technology used by students in the course. Items available will include a UP Mini 3D Printer, a Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter, an Arduino microcontroller and a Raspberry Pi microcomputer. Faculty and staff involved in the course will be available to demonstrate and answer questions about the different devices, discuss the work of the course’s students and talk more broadly about the maker movement in relation to the LIS profession.
