Library Public Technology
I manage Technology Services which is responsible for supporting technology in the public spaces of the library, offering tech help to students, faculty, and staff, providing tech coach sessions for ePortfolio, providing specialized printing services (poster, photo, 3D, and lamination), and checking out equipment including calculators and laptops to students.
I also manage the MakerSpace where students, faculty, and staff can learn to 3D print, use a vinyl plotter, use a laser etcher/cutter, practice programming and electronics skills, repair and make things using hand tools, try Virtual Reality, and use specialized design software including Adobe CC, Autodesk products, Unreal Engine, and Unity.
I can assist faculty by offering a personalized discovery experience of the MakerSpace, discussing how we can customize a tour of the MakerSpace for classes, suggesting how the MakerSpace can be incorporated into curriculum, discussing how the MakerSpace and Technology Services can assist with grants, documenting and making cases for requests for software and hardware to be added in the library public spaces, and acting as a resource concerning specialized software and equipment in library public spaces.
