The thing I love about Makerspaces is that the only limit is your imagination. Now that sounds like a cliche line you might read in a brochure, but it’s the truth. You have an idea, we have the tools and the ability to teach you how to use them. It’s that simple. A Makerspace is where people come together to share knowledge for the good of the group. And that’s what I love about working at the Small Hall Makerspace- it’s a place where interdisciplinary cooperation is commonplace, and you learn for the fun of it...

    My name is Keyyatta Bonds, and I am part of the second cohort of the William & Mary Libraries Mosaic Program. I am Sophomore at the College, planning to major in International Relations (even though taking more ECON classes is not what I envisioned for my future).

    Hey, fellow Swem-goers! My name is Alexis and I have been working at Swem Circulation for over a year now. I started out as an assistant, shelving and sorting from the books needed for final papers. Last year, I was able to help deliver books to professors all over campus. And as it turns out, books can bring more excitement when you get to drive them in a golf-cart, trying not to get stuck behind tour groups (otherwise known as flamingos).

    I started working at Swem in my very first week of freshman year and fell in love with the place immediately. On my first day, I wandered the library to fill out a scavenger-hunt-esque training exercise that introduced me to the labyrinth of books that serves as the cultural capital of our campus. The building really does it all.

    My name is Elisabeth Merrifield. Yes, it is spelled with an ‘s’ and not a ‘z’ mainly because my parents did not want me to be called ‘Liz’ (it did not work). I am a senior at the College. I am double majoring in government and history. I transferred in the Fall of 2015 and have loved it here. I play for the Gold Women’s Club Volleyball team and love my team. They are outstanding and ridiculously smart people.
