Share your learning goals.

One of the professional goals I set for myself this fall is to learn more about current library trends.

As the single librarian of a small academic library, it's important to me to make an effort to learn and network virtually. I also find it fascinating that some libraries have great success with certain tools or approaches while others find the same tools less useful. Further, trends in public and academic libraries tend to differ significantly, but I think each can inform the other: makerspaces is one of these crossover trends. 

I'm hoping to hear how makerspaces have worked in smaller institutions, and what the alternatives are to designating a whole permanent space; perhaps theme days or terms would work just as well?
