ARL SPEC Survey Published

September 16, 2015

ARL has released the our Rapid Fabrication/Makerspace Services survey (SPEC Kit 348), which explores ARL libraries' engagement with 3-D printing, rapid fabrication and digitization technologies, and makerspaces, as well as the types of service offerings libraries can provide, level of service, level of resource commitment, potential clientele needs, and evaluation of the service. This study covers ARL member libraries' policies, services, investments in, and experiences with supporting fabrication services and makerspaces. 


A webinar to discuss the report is being hosted on October 14.
