Yes, this Fall we are opening the Think Lab here at UMW Libraries. While we have been part of the planning process for the space, I would say thus far the library has played the role of landlord more than anything else. I see this partnership developing as time progresses. (I have a few projects planned myself.)
A colleague, Tim Owens, is blogging about the Think Lab here: http://www.makerbot.com/blog/2012/07/26/help-tim-owens-build-an-awesome-makerspace/

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Maker Spaces and Academic Libraries
A colleague and I are going to be presenting at code4lib NE on the subject of makerspaces in academic libraries. Are any of you doing this? If so I would love to pick your brains a little.
