The Factory at UNT Libraries awarded Special Projects Grant

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) recently awarded funding to The Factory at UNT Libraries under its Texas Reads grant program. This award will enable the UNT Libraries to significantly expand its maker space, The Factory at UNT. The Factory will be able to purchase new equipment for use inside the libraries and items available for checkout and use by students, and it will allow The Factory to produce more workshops and instruction in the use of their technology and equipment.

This project is just one of 71 made possible this year by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. “The projects funded by these grants are an amazing panorama of innovation, best practice, and forward direction in library services,” says Mark Smith, TSLAC director and librarian.

TSLAC awards competitive grants annually, as funding allows. For the 2016 fiscal year, which runs from Sept. 1, 2015 to Aug. 31, 2016, TSLAC has awarded approximately $1.5 million in competitive grants, including 12 Special Projects grants.

“In the one year since we opened The Factory, we have been able to offer students from all disciplines a gateway to incorporating a 3-dimensional learning environment into their personal learning experience,” says Judy Hunter, operations manager at UNT Libraries. “We are excited to further our initiatives through the expansion of both our spaces and the resources we have available to our students.”
