We'll be BACK on site, but NOT just yet!

Check this site regularly for updates on what onsite services we are restoring.

LCR is part of the overall University of Calgary re-entry strategy. We are working to restore some essential services as quickly as possible in a way that is safe for you - our users- and our staff and in the context of the overall campus re-entry plan. We will continue to offer our suite of online services and will also be expanding access to online books and resources. Virtual service hours today: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Physical locations remain closed. You can return your books to the exterior book drop on the East side of the TFDL. More information on the Covid 19 page.

TFDL Makerspace Training

Online training for TFDL makerspace equipment

 

Welcome to the TFDL Makerspace Online Training!

 

The TFDL Makerspace provides hands on access to technologies for DIY making and collaboration. We have various kinds of equipment ranging from 3D printers to embroidery machines. Access to the Makerspace requires completion of the Safety Orientation.

 

There is an online training module for each piece of equipment available in the Makerspace. Some training modules are more detailed than others.

Each module consists of:

  • An overview of the technology including history and applications
  • Learning how to setup the equipment
  • An introduction to the software used for certain equipment
  • Learning how to troubleshoot common problems
