Updated: “Libraries and Makerspaces” Resources Page from UK Gov’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (Case Studies, Links, and More)

From the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport:

A makerspace is a physical location where people gather to co-create, share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network, and build.

A growing number of libraries in England have makerspaces and in Libraries Deliver: Ambition for Public Libraries in England 2016 to 2021, the Taskforce committed to support the extension of partnership projects such as the BFI Mediatheques and makerspaces.

The Libraries Taskforce have pulled together case studies, links and resources for library services with makerspaces or those who are thinking of creating one. There is also a map showing all libraries with makerspaces, and those in development.
