The Ourimbah Library is proud to announce the first Library Makerspace at UON.

What is a Makerspace?
A Makerspace is a dedicated space to experiment, create and remix ideas utilising technology whilst collaborating with others in a supported environment.

What will be in the Makerspace?
To start with we'll have 3D Printers, a 3D Scanner, 3D modelling and AV software, computerised sewing machines, Raspberry Pi and video equipment. There will also be an area to relax with some colouring books, play some board games, or rediscover Lego!

When will it be open?
We are working toward opening the space for Semester 2 of 2019, so make sure to keep an eye on our progress updates via the Library Blog.

The Makerspace is your space and is intended for ALL students. It is free (proudly funded by SSAF) and we encourage everyone to come along with your ideas and your enthusiasm.
