The Kenan Science Library Makerspace is located in Venable Hall. The KSL Makerspace offers a 3D printing service, two sewing machines, a Cricut Maker, 3D scanner, soldering station, knitting supplies, and VR. More information about the space and tools available in this makerspace can be found here:
The BeAM (Be A Maker) Network is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's network of on-campus makerspaces. With multiple makerspace locations -- Murray Hall, Carmichael Hall, and the Hanes Art Center -- plus the Design Center, BeAM provides UNC affiliates access to a variety of maker tools, technologies, and services.
Apart from the Kenan Science Library Makerspace, BeAM makerspace locations require completion of a safety waiver, introductory "101" Sakai training module and an onsite training session to access makerspace tools. For use of basic hand tools like screwdrivers and drills, only this general training is required. Other tools like laser cutters, sewing machines and woodshop equipment require additional training modules. To learn more and get started with BeAM 101, visit the BeAM Basic Tools webpage.
Also part of the BeAM Network, the BeAM Design Center supports research projects by offering consultations and other services to meet design and fabrication needs.
The Media & Design Center is located in the House Undergraduate Library. It offers access to computers, other equipment, materials, workstations, studio space, workshops, reservable VR, and instruction related to different types of media and media production. Additional Guides on types of content creation are linked from the Design Lab webpage.
The Kenan Science Library is one of three locations in the Research Hub network. The Research Hub network offers "spaces, technology, and expertise to assist with all phases of research." Each location in the network focuses on different tasks and disciplines of research.
Resources connected to this campus-wide entrepreneurship initiative include co-working spaces, funding opportunities, pitch competitions, events and workshops.
The Odum Institute for Research in Social Science offers courses on research-related topics like statistics, data analysis, programming languages, and publishing. Check out the link in the UNC Workshops box above for descriptions of past and upcoming courses.
The Chapel Hill Analytical and Nanofabrication Laboratory offers access to tools and expertise helpful for research and fabrication. This is a core facility located in Chapman Hall.
