The Indiana State Library is proud to offer kits to help libraries in determining if they should invest in a maker space, a robot or Virtual Reality program. The kits can be reserved by contacting your Regional Coordinator who will bring the kit to your library. The kit will remain at your library for a period of up to 3 weeks so you can test the various components and determine what would be a good fit for your library. The kits can also be used with patrons.
The Indiana State Library has changed the checkout requirements for our circulating technology kits for the new year. Starting this month, the Maker Space and Robots Kits can now be used in patron programming! Libraries that would like to check out the Maker Space or Robot Kits just need to complete an online Moodle course before reserving the kit. This course can be taken at your own pace, is worth two TLEUs and must be completed before a scheduled kit drop-off. You can find these courses on the Professional Development Office’s Moodle page. The kits can be checked out for three weeks.
Please Contact the Professional Development office if you have questions.
