Idea Lab

What Is the Idea Lab?

The Idea Lab is a library initiative designed to support digital fluency at Humber College. The Idea Lab has four components: studio spaces, workshops, online resources, and student supports.

Spaces

The Idea Lab has bookable spaces on the third floor of the LRC building at North campus and the third floor of the Longo Centre for Entrepreneurship (G building) at Lakeshore campus. These spaces include video studios, audio studios, 3D printers, sewing machines, laser and vinyl cutters. Our spaces are available to Humber and Guelph-Humber students, staff, and faculty but priority will be given to students working on assignments. These spaces can be reserved using the “Book a Studio” section below.

Workshops

The Idea Lab team holds regular open workshops on a variety of topics such as creating videos, building simple websites, and 3D printing. Workshop descriptions and schedules can be found below.

Online Resources
