This talk will highlight the use cases, instructional programs, and outreach efforts of a pioneering makerspace in an academic health sciences library.

3D printing and other emerging technologies have enabled many innovations and breakthroughs in medicine, life sciences, and healthcare. However, many academic libraries still lack sufficient support, educational opportunities, and maker programs that are tailored for the needs of students, faculty, and researchers in the areas of medicine, life sciences, and healthcare. This Ignite Talk will focus on the Innovation Space, a makerspace specifically created to support innovative teaching, learning, and research activities in these areas. The Innovation Space is operated by the University of Maryland, Baltimore's Health Sciences and Human Services Library that serves both a teaching hospital and graduate programs in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, social work, and life sciences.
