Transcript of OCL MakerSpace Proposal

Presented by Lauren Shockley & Dorothy Luyster
Makerspaces come in all shapes and sizes, but they all serve as a gathering point for tools, projects, mentors and expertise. A collection of tools does not define a Makerspace. Rather, we define it by what it enables: making.

Toms River Space Plan
Jackson Space Plan
We will transform the "Cafe" space into a new Makerspace.

It is equipped with two sinks, and can serve as our "messy" Makerspace.

It has a door adjoining it to the meeting room. Making it a perfect complement for programs.

View of space inside the doorway.
Island counters will be taken down and be replaced by tables better suited for a Makerspace.
Jackson Space Plan
Countertop and sinks will stay in the space.
Door to the back leads to a large meeting room.
Jackson Space Plan
The Cafe space has plenty of room for SparkLab tables and work areas.
The SparkLab will be the first thing all library visitors see upon entering the building.
Staff Training
Impact to the Community
Makers will be asked to evaluate and give feedback on their experiences in the Makerspace.

OCL staff will partner with local schools, community groups, volunteers, and professionals to enhance our offerings.

Programs will be evaluated against the principles intrinsic to the Ocean County Library;
Connecting People, Building Community, Transforming Lives.
1. We will write into our budget a variety of items to sustain our Makerspace.

2. Grants will be sought after on an on-going basis.

3. Community sponsorships will be integral to the sustainability of the OCL Makerspaces.

4. Marketing of our Makerspaces will attract new avenues of partnership and revenue to sustain and build our Makerspaces.
Safety Guidelines
1. The OCL provides the Maker with access to safety supplies in the Lab.

2. Certain tools and machinery have age requirements for use, which are listed on their Equipment Use Guidelines card.

3. Some tools require specific safety gear, which is described on the tool's Equipment Use Guidelines card.

4. Certain tools may also require hair and dangling items, like jewlery, to be secured or covered before use.

5. Appropriate close-toed shoes and clothing must be worn depending on the activity.

6. The Maker agrees that if any tool or piece of equipment becomes unsafe or in a state of disrepair, they will immediately discontinue use of the tool and notify the OCL SparkLab staff member.

7. Makers must report any accident/incident that occurs on OCL SparkLab premises to a staff member.
3D Printing Policy
1. Makers are not permitted to create materials that are:
a. Prohibited by local, state, or federal law.
b. Unsafe, harmful, dangerous or poses an immediate threat to the well-being of others.
c. Offensive, obscene, or racist.
d. Functioning weapons.
e. In violation of the library's Code of Conduct, Computer Use Policy, or any other library or county policy.
f. Violate patent, copyright, trademark, or otherwise infringe upon the intellectual property of others.

2. The OCL reserves the right to refuse any 3D print request.

3. The OCL reserves the right to view all 3D design files before printing.

4. Only designated library staff will have hands-on access to the 3D printers.

5. Makers must use 3D printing filament provided by the library. Variety and availability of filament colors may vary.

6. Printed items must be picked up within seven days.

7. Unsuccessful prints:
(1) The library will reprint a design due to printer error.
(2) Success of a print depends on the design of the object.

8. Customer 3D design files will be deleted from Library SD cards after the object has been printed.

OCL MakerSpace Proposal
Drafted by the Emerging Technologies Committee
What is a MakerSpace?
Building upon the Library Mascot, Sparks, the Emerging Technologies Committee has come up with the name SparkLab for our Makerspace.

Using our mascot enables cross-promotion of our new Sparks plush-doll and any future Sparks promotional materials.

Toms River Space Plan
Toms River Space Plan
The proposed site for the Makerspace is on the 2nd floor outside the doors to the Hugh B. Wheeler Room and the Rose B. Horan Silent Study Tower.

We are proposing to build a framed glass partial wall and doorway into the space. There will be space between the top of the glass and the ceiling to allow for ventilation.
OCL staff will be trained in the purpose, use, and proper safety guidelines of all Makerspace equipment on a rolling basis.

Emerging Technologies and the Tech3 Committee will partner together to conduct in-person training, create webinars, videos, SharePoint guides, and team building activities.

Each piece of equipment will have an Equipment Use Guidelines Card as near as possible to it.
