Equipment in the Makerspace

The Albertsons Library MakerLab offers emerging technologies for all students, staff, and faculty to use. Equipment must remain in the MakerLab while it is being used. Anyone affiliated with the university may schedule to use the equipment. A list of most resources and equipment is available below.

We are open Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm. Any student, staff, or faculty member may walk into the MakerLab and ask an employee to get trained on this equipment. This is the process that helps you gain access. Individuals must be trained to use the equipment, make reservations, and follow all safety procedures.

We may have some samples of supplies for some of these items, but we do not provide supplies for completing projects except for filament for the 3D printers and resin for the Form 2. You will need to supply your own materials in those cases, such as circuit boards, cloth, wood, or string.
