Makerspaces are shared creative spaces, aimed at providing tools and resources to enable various forms of ‘making’. AUT Library believes that the philosophy behind makerspaces allows us to offer alternatives to traditional library study spaces and a place for our students to incorporate ‘making’ as a part of their library experience. AUT Library is not just a place for books and desks. In diversifying our offering as a library we're working with our students to provide more options in the ways you can use the library.

Throughout the academic year, AUT Library provides creative workshops and events, which are free for AUT students. Keep an eye out on this page for upcoming events and book your place!
