From the ALA District Dispatch:
Today, ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy released (OITP) Toward A More Printed Union: Library 3D Printing Democratizes Creation a short paper [four pages] that highlights the multifaceted 3D printing leadership of libraries. The paper urges public and private sector leaders to leverage this leadership to unlock the full potential of 3D printing technology for all Americans.
The paper is the third 3D printing publication released by OITP.
The first two – a tip sheet and a white paper elucidating the policy implications of 3D printing in the library context – are part of a series of informative resources labeled “Progress in the Making,” meant to help library professionals navigate the legal and regulatory complexities of providing 3D printing as a service.
