Moody Memorial Library was generously offered a gift from the Shumacher Foundation and four office spaces to create digital media lab spaces for the Baylor community. Included are three recording studios, A/V equipment for reservation, and computers for editing and rendering.
Reading literacy and access to knowledge in the written word has long been a central goal for libraries. With the ascendency of digital literacy and the expense of access to the tools of this trade, libraries have increasingly begun providing media creation and exploration spaces.
Baylor University Libraries is pleased to join this trend.
Did you know Moody Memorial Library hosts a makerspace? The Moody Makerspace inhabits 660 sq. ft. on the Garden Level and boasts a wide range of tools and equipment, including 3D printers, laser cutter, CNC router, vinyl cutters, soldering station, some hand tools, and, of course, plenty of worktables!
