MIT Library Tool Checkout

The goal of this project is to allow MIT faculty, staff, and students to make things at their own convenience. Sometimes it is simpler to take the tool to the project. In these cases the current MIT maker infrastructure is insufficient. This proposal leverages the current MIT library system and knowledge (librarians and MIT MakerWorks mentors) to provide a means for tool checkout. I also consult on how to implement a system in your library.
