Makerspace COVID Survival Guide

Co-Presented at the Kentucky Libraries Joint Spring Conference, 4/2022

Samantha Geiger and Christian Sheehy from Northern Kentucky University share strategies they used to safely adapt their makerspaces, designed for physical interactions, into a virtual world during COVID. Bringing together both public and academic library experience, they will share how they shifted services, mitigated risk, and engaged with patrons who were suddenly unable to come to their physical libraries. They will also share best practices that are worth keeping post-COVID and beyond.
