The Makerspace at Hayden Library is an inspiring and welcoming space overflowing with creativity. A dedicated team of staff and student workers offer opportunities for ASU students to meet, share and collaborate with people from other fields and disciplines. Travis Daniel has worked in the ASU Library’s Makerspace for almost two years and in that time has become a dependable and knowledgeable member of the team.

From teaching students and visitors how to use the 3D printing equipment to running workshops and events, Daniel makes the Makerspace experience welcoming for anyone who visits. In fall 2022, Daniel received the Tomalee Doan LibAid for Student Success award in recognition of his work in Makerspace.

“Working at the ASU Library, and especially working at the Makerspace, means I have the opportunity to share knowledge, collaborate, and learn with others,” said Daniel. “Through our unique collection of equipment and knowledge, working here means I can help connect my peers with necessary resources and build a fun and innovative culture for them to grow in.” 

Student workers are the force and face of the ASU Library. Around 200 student workers across all library locations serve the ASU community each day, contributing to the success and impact of university research, academics and campus life.
