Maker Hub Community

The Maker Hub is defined by the people who use it.

There a several ways to get involved with the Maker Hub. The easiest is simply to drop in during our open hours, ask one of our friendly staff or volunteers to show you around, and start making. There's (almost) always someone in the space who can show you how to use any of our equipment, and we love learning together!

Join our Google Group!

Participate in our online community to share ideas, find collaborators, ask questions, and keep up with all the goings-on by joining our google group: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/maker-hub . The Google group is a bit more inside than the Facebook group, and better for people who are likely to spend time in the physical space.

Join our Facebook Group!

Our Facebook Group is our public face to the online world. Anyone can join it, and it's there that we share our awesome projects (and some of the fails too), post events, re-post cool articles, and invite our friends to see what we're up to. https://www.facebook.com/groups/gumakerhub 

Be a Maker Hub Volunteer Monitor!

Join our awesome Community of Makers at Georgetown, and expand our impact on campus by becoming a Maker Hub Volunteer Monitor!

In return for working at least 2 hours a week in the Maker Hub, volunteers get access to the space whenever the Library is open.

How it works:

  1. Send an email to makerhub@georgetown.edu indicating your interest. Let us know what open hours you are available. (Maker Hub is open 12-5 Mon, Fri, Sat, and 5-8 Tues, Wed, Thurs). We’ll work with you to find 2 hours that work best for both of us.

  2. A time will be scheduled for you to receive monitor orientation.

  3. Once you have received orientation and started your shifts, you’ll have access to the Maker Hub during all Library open hours.

Off-hours access rules:

  1. At least 2 people must be in the Maker Hub at all times.

  2. At least 1 of those people must be a Maker Hub monitor (volunteer or staff).

  3. Maker Hub monitors assume responsibility for the actions of everyone in the space during these periods and are responsible for locking up the space when they leave.

Before, I've had to throw out hundreds of ideas from my imagination because I didn't have the right tools to get started, but, at the Makerhub, the most limiting shortage I can have now is one of time.
