New Cricut Machine
Visit Bibliotech, the FIMS Graduate Library Makerspace, and use the Cricut (an electronic cutting machine). Create a design and use the machine to precisely cut vinyl, paper, cardstock, fabric, thin wood, and a number of other materials. A great tool to learn about design, prototyping, and maker technology!

Privacy in the Library
Privacy in the Library is part of our privacy initiative, in alliance with the Library Freedom Project and Tor Project. Our community strongly values privacy and intellectual freedom, which are threatened by surveillance, corporate data mining, censorship regimes, etc. Our goal is to empower members of our community, and in turn, members of their own communities, to protect their right to privacy and free expressions by advocating, implementing, and teaching information privacy tools and techniques.
The Privacy in the Library website is a hub of information regarding our work within the initiative, as well as a collection of resources to help guide people in protecting their information privacy.
