    Lightbulb Maker movement

    Midwinter’s Maker Monday Builds New Bridges between Libraries and Communities


    Hi,

    I wonder to know if the underlined words are all proper nouns?

    I also like to know what's the meaning of "Maker movement" I've searched for it and I've found this:


    What is the Maker Movement? - Definition from Techopedia

    Is this definition correct?

    Re: Maker movement

    Because the sentence doesn't make any sense to me. You need to provide some context if you want some help.

    Re: Maker movement

    Midwinter

    Here you can find whole the text, Sorry but I didn't know which phrase would be helpful for you to understand the whole concept so I've linked it.

    Thank you

    Re: Maker movement

    Yes, they are all proper nouns. "Midwinter" is a shorthand reference to "ALA Midwinter," which apparently was some type of convention or group meeting.

    At this vent they had a "Maker Monday," which they dedicated to the discussion of "makerspaces" in libraries.

    This is all industry jargon. Unless you are a librarian, I would forget about this article.
