Maker Instruction Toolkit

This toolkit was designed and created by Stephanie Milne-Lane, MLIS student at the University of Washington, 2019 in consultation with Associate Professor and Head of Emerging Technology and Experiential Learning, Amy Vecchione. The purpose of this toolkit is to create and establish a framework for providing library maker instruction through the lens of the ACRL Framework. The framework connects with maker instruction easily,  as evidenced in this research. To use this toolkit, follow the links to the subpages below to learn more information. Reading the background, literature review, and downloading the toolkits can provide any librarian with the ability to design instruction to use their makerspace to create new information.
