3D printing coming soon!

The LSUHSC-NO Libraries is proud to announce that it has been awarded the first  National Network of Libraries of Medicine South Central Region’s (NN/LM SCR) Emerging Technologies Award.  With the funds provided by this award, the Libraries will purchase two 3 dimensional printers and two 3 dimensional scanners to be placed in the libraries.  This equipment will be available for free to everyone affiliated with LSUHSC-NO.

LSUHSC-NO Libraries’ goal of this project is to provide students with a friendly, welcoming, environment to innovate, create, collaborate, and discover.  The library seeks to give students, staff, and faculty opportunities to explore 3D technology in an accessible location without exorbitant costs.  These scanners and printers will offer the means to build prototypes, create models, improve equipment, and so on, limited only by one’s imagination.

The mission of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving the public’s access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. The Program is coordinated by the National Library of Medicine and carried out through a nationwide network of health science libraries and information centers.  This year, the South Central Region instituted the Emerging Technology Award to to assist libraries in the integration of new and emerging technologies in their institutions to promote health information services.  

Further developments on this project will be announced as available.

What will you make?
