You might check out this book via interlibrary loan from the State Library. It "Answers common questions about implementing a makerspace project, detailing how libraries are addressing issues such as registration, usage policy, noise, software programs in digital workspaces, adapting spaces, funding, and promotion;"


Bagley, Caitlin, LITA. Makerspaces: Top Trailblazing Projects, A LITA Guide. Chicago: ALA, 2014. 027 Bagle.  ISBN 978-1-55570-990-7

If you would like to request these or other materials from the Oregon State Library please use your library's established interlibrary loan process (e.g. OCLC or ALA request form).  Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at library.request at state.or.us<mailto:library.request at state.or.us> or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos). Materials will be delivered via mail or Orbis Cascade Alliance Courier, and you may return them the same way. Normally a single copy is purchased and is loaned on a first-come-first-served basis. You may be put on a hold list for several weeks. Thank you for your patience. Most library staff are able to use their library’s interlibrary loan service to borrow professional development material. However, if you do not have access to these services or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me<mailto:tamara.ottum at state.or.us> to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Questions for Libraries With 3D Printers

Hi everyone,

This question is for those of you who have experience with 3D printers.
A generous patron has just donated a 3D printer to our library (Yay,
maker spaces!) We are extremely excited about it, but with that
excitement come some concerns, such as:

What kinds of policies do you have for 3D printer usage? Did you have to
do anything to address the noise? It's not very loud, but since it does
print for extended periods of time we are afraid that might annoy some
patrons. We are also wondering specifically about pricing policies.

We also realize that unforeseen issues and concerns will likely arise.
Any knowledge that you have for us is greatly appreciated!

If you're curious about our printer, you can check it out at the
following link:


Once again, we REALLY appreciate any advice you 3D printing gurus have
for us! Thank you!
