dc.description.abstractExecutive Summary: The leadership of the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) has decided to explore the concept of a makerspace. The recent growth and rapid adoption of makerspaces and 3D printing technology in health sciences will impact the tools that our future students, researchers, and faculty will expect to have access to. The mission of this Task Force was to determine what role a makerspace could serve in an academic health sciences library and if the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s HS/HSL could benefit from one. Based on the environmental scan, which involved the literature review of current makerspaces in educational institutions and site visits to local makerspaces, we believe that a makerspace within the HS/HSL will greatly benefit UMB students, researchers, and faculty. It will provide an open space that will allow them to explore and utilize new technology that has a significant impact on hands-on learning, classroom instruction, cutting-edge research, and innovative patient care in health sciences. This Task Force recommends the creation of a makerspace in HS/HSL which would include 3D printers, 3D scanners, and computers with the appropriate software for modeling and visualizing 3D objects as detailed in the recommendations section of this paper. The makerspace would also organize workshops and programs to promote technological experimentation and idea prototyping to the UMB community. To fund the creation of the makerspace, the Task Force has identified two potential grant opportunities that would help cover some costs associated with creating the space if applied for and awarded. Other potential sources of funding include soliciting donor funds for technology or stakeholder contributions. In order to best support the needs of students, researchers, and faculty, the Task Force also recommends that this project be pursued as soon as the funds are available.en_US
