Makerspaces in libraries survey

Please read the e-mail below and help our colleague, John Burke, with his research on makerspaces in libraries.


From: Burke, John []
Subject: Makerspaces in libraries survey

For a book that I am writing on makerspaces in libraries, I am curious to learn more about libraries that have a makerspace, fab lab, or hackerspace.  These spaces are areas in a library where patrons can use tools and equipment to imagine, design, build, and create all sorts of different things.

I’m trying to get a sense of what types of making are happening in various library settings.  If you have a makerspace or are planning to launch one, I would appreciate you taking a few minutes to fill out my survey at

It should take about five minutes to complete (depending on how much you’d like to share).

The results of the survey will be shared with this list soon after the survey closes, with a more involved analysis available once the book is published. I am eager to learn more about makerspace implementations, and to share that information with you.

Please complete the survey as soon as possible.  Thanks so much for your participation!
