Richardson Library Maker Hub

JTR Maker Hub

In 2017, there was an expansion of the Information Commons technology program found on the first floor of the John T. Richardson Library to the 2nd floor to provide new spaces and technologies in support of media content creation, digital scholarship and maker programs. In deepening and expanding interdisciplinary access to a wide variety of academic technology and support services, we hope to promote creativity, innovation, knowledge sharing, and experimentation among all campus community members.

The Maker Hub was closed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, but has since reopened. There aren't currently set hours, but feel free to stop by when you see someone in the space!

Using the Space

The Maker Hub staff operates and maintains the equipment in the space. They will handle setting up your designs for 3D printing or laser cutting; you do not need to know how to operate the machines in order to have your design made. If you are interested in becoming certified in a particular technology, you can do that at DePaul's Idea Realization Lab

Drop into any open hours session at the Maker Hub. Upon your first visit, you’ll get an introduction to the space’s equipment. You must sign an activity waiver prior to using the space.
