The UNT Libraries' makerspace, The Spark, promotes the cooperative and creative use of technology. We provide the UNT community including faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students with access to equipment, software, and training that promotes innovative, cross-disciplinary learning. The Spark will host numerous workshops online and at one of our locations in Willis Library or Discovery Park this semester to help you get familiar with the great tools available for use.
A consultation is a 30-60 minute session with a Knowledge Specialist. In this session, you are expected to present the project concept/question so the Knowledge Specialist can highlight resources and offer suggestions to assist you in accomplishing your project goal.
Training is a 60-minute session with a Knowledge Specialist that will train you on safety standards, proper use of equipment/software, and Spark use guidelines. Some equipment*/software may take more than one session. *You will sign a contract after your training session for future use on The Spark’s equipment.
Do you have everything ready to complete your project? You should have a file created in the proper format, approved materials, and you will need to schedule a session with a Knowledge Specialist to complete the cut/scan.
