The Lovejoy Library MakerLab is a makerspace for SIUE students to further develop their creative skills in a physical realm. Students have access to a variety of equipment and tools enabling them to design and produce projects for personal or academic use. A vinyl cutter, a programmable embroidery sewing machine and a 3D printer are just a few of the resources provided in the MakerLab.
SIUE students may reserve times and equipment during the open hours of the MakerLab. Reservations are necessary in order to maintain a safe environment in the MakerLab and allow students access to MakerLab resources. If this is your first time working with the MakerLab equipment and tools you will be asked to sign a Safety Procedures and Agreement form and someone from the MakerLab will assist you with the appropriate use of the equipment/tools you reserved for use. The MakerLab can provide some materials, but if there are specific materials you desire for your project, you must provide them.
