The button maker may circulate to university faculty and staff with a 24 hour lending period. The button maker must be reserved a week in advance by contacting Sarah Reando at When the reservation is placed, arrangements for pickup can be made. Instructions for using the button maker are provided. Demonstrations on operating the button maker are available upon request.



At University sponsored events, in which librarystaff will participate, represent the library, and make buttons of the library’s creation, button making materials are to be supplied by the library.





At events hosted by academic and university departments or student organizations, where buttons other than those designed by the library are to be made, the organizers of the event will operate the button maker, purchase button making supplies, and print button templates. Color printing is not available in the library, but can be accomplished for a fee at the Mail and Copy Center.



The button maker creates 1-inch buttons. Materials are often found on Amazon, and consist of a smooth metal disk, plastic film, and backing with pin.



Especially during times of increased activity on campus, it is important that this equipment is returned on time. Failure to return the button maker on time or damage to equipment will result in loss of borrowing privileges for this material, and a charge to the borrower’s university financial account for the extent of the damage.




With any other questions concerning the button maker, please contact Sarah Reando at .
