The transition from print to electronic collections is opening up tremendous opportunity for the library to engage with and build its community. From WordPress bootcamps, 24-hour hackathons, lockpicking workshops, Whiteboard walls, Students vs. Zombie events, to 3D printers, electronics and robotics toolkits and even wireless drone quadricopters, the presenters have stories to tell. Freelancers, entrepreneurs, startups, and other creative professionals from the surrounding community come together with students and faculty in events centered around common interest, with the library as the hub. During the course of a few years the DeLaMare library has realized a tenfold growth in usage—converting users into evangelists one connection at a time.
