Milner Library is investigating the development of a technology space in the library. Because Milner is committed to building a space that meets the needs of the Illinois State University community, we have been talking with on- and off-campus partners about makerspaces and other new technological spaces in the library. We have also taken site visits on and off campus, including trips to Champaign/Urbana, Chicago, and more.

While we don’t want to limit possible feedback, the following has been discussed:

  • Inventor kits
  • Loanable technology
  • 3D printers and scanners
  • One Button Studio
  • Audio/video recording and editing
  • Virtual reality
  • Gaming
  • Laminators

Please contact Chad Kahl if you have any questions about this project or if you need special accommodations to attend this event. Please allow sufficient time to arrange accommodations.
