Albertsons Library’s MakerLab is available to Boise State University students, staff, and faculty to boost their creative confidence. Use of the equipment is free for all, and creates an environment where students can obtain job skills, invent, proto-type, explore, and build their ideas.

In 2019 we conducted four different studies in the MakerLab to identify who is using the space, how we can best reach non-users, what non-users think about the MakerLab, and how we can become more accessible. We build the space and culture based on this feedback.
