Abstract

CUHK Library is committed to supporting the University-wide theme Innovation & Design. It has been partnering with faculties and support units to advocate a maker culture in the 24x7 Learning Garden to provide 3D printing and scanning equipment, and a collaborative working space alongside with high-performance multimedia workstations. To move forward, CUHK Library is planning to expand this space to a full-fledged innovation generator to support:

• Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) concept applications and development
• Creative media production of digital content
• A flexible prototyping and digital fabrication workspace with hot benches, laser cutter, 3D printers and scanners for hands-on workshops and classes

This MakerSpace is open to all members of the CUHK community, and services as an entry point for staff and students to explore the maker’s culture. It will adopt a maker-oriented service model by

• providing hands-on workshops and technical support to operate the high-end machines
• encouraging self-service, environmental-friendly activities
• Engaging students to assist in daily equipment operation and space management
• Serving as a coordinator between makers and communities

The Library’s MakerSpace will be built in two phases, with the targeted completion dates in March 2019 and Summer 2019 respectively. The 24x 7 collaborative Learning Garden will continue to support creative learning experiences.
