dc.description.abstractStudents acquire, communicate, share and create knowledge through more than the printed word, and libraries are in a position to provide equitable access to a variety of multimodal resources enabling students to do so. Embracing this mission, one medium-sized public academic library was determined to open a makerspace. How does a library in a state with well-publicized and major budget cuts to higher education manage to do this? Through collaborative relationships, using and creatively repurposing what it has, and intentional communication. This article describes one library’s process in gauging interest, soliciting support, and successfully implementing a makerspace. It focuses on communication strategies used to manage perceptions of such an audacious undertaking in a climate of austerity.en_US
