Dec 12th: Beyond Books: How Libraries of the Digital Age Can Foster Innovation and Entrepreneurship


We are pleased to welcome Tara Radniecki and Chrissy Klenke to present: “Beyond Books: How Libraries of the Digital Age Can Foster Innovation and Entrepreneurship”

Libraries have always been a place where anyone with the desire to learn could access knowledge in their community. Historically quiet study spaces providing access to books and journals, cutting edge libraries are now a more vibrant hub of learning, collaboration, and innovation where 3D printers and laser cutters can be found alongside books.

Tara Radniecki, Engineering Librarian, and Chrissy Klenke, Geosciences Librarian, at the DeLaMare Science & Engineering Library at the University of Nevada, Reno, work with students, faculty, and members of the greater northern Nevada community to find information, prototype innovations, develop new literacies, and support teaching and learning on campus.

Radniecki and Klenke will discuss how the DeLaMare Library has recently transformed into a space that truly fosters learning, innovation, and entrepreneurship by  providing not only on-site and lending maker equipment, but also expert consultations on 3D modeling, design, intellectual property and more.
