DigiMaker has recently advanced beyond the project stage and is under development. The digital lab component comprise digital methods in research, primarily relating to text analysis. A makerspace is a common area for sharing knowledge, tools and ideas.
DigiMaker’s primary target groups are undergraduate and PhD students as well as researchers at LiU. Linköping University Library is also open to the public, and so is DigiMaker. Facilities are located in Valla Library (Studenthuset, 5th floor) and Campus Norrköping Library (DigiMaker/Flexsalen).
At present, we can offer the following equipment and introductions:
Learn how to create films with user-friendly digital tools.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Experience the world in Google Earth, historical recreations, works of art and more with VR technology.
We offer introductions to 3D-printing/CAD. When you have completed the introductory course, you have access to the 3D-printers. At Valla Library, you can book the 3D printer via a special booking sheet available in DigiMaker (see loose-leaf binder marked "Bokning av 3D-skrivaren"). At Campus Norrköping Library, email your booking request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also offer level-2 courses in 3D-printing.
We are currently cooperating with a project about virtual practice for teacher students as a complement to traditional practice. We offer introductions to the simulation program and associated equipment.
Digital humanities/Digital methods/Digital Scholarship
Upon requests, we offer introductions in digital resources such as NVivo and VOSViewer and other resources for digital access, visualization and publishing, and can provide a meeting place for exchange of ideas within digital scholarship.
