How does 3D Printing fit in an Academic Library?

3D printers advance the library's mission by:

  • Supporting students to prepare them for meaningful careers, advanced study, lifelong learning, and participation in a global and technological society
  • Providing access to resources to serve educational needs
  • Encouraging the use of current technologies and tools to enhance research and experiential learning, collaborative strategies, and expanding information networks
  • Providing an essential facility where emerging and established scholars access information and gather in an atmosphere conducive to learning and other creative endeavors
