More about the Department of Library Services’ MakerSpace

The Department of Library Services at the University of Pretoria (UP) became the first library in South Africa to establish a MakerSpace – a creative laboratory where people with ideas can get together with people who have the technical ability to turn these ideas into reality. A MakerSpace is often associated with fields such as engineering, computer science, graphic design and digital art, and although the physical space is important, it is the collaboration among individuals with various and distinct areas of knowledge that is fundamental to fostering this creative environment.
