Symposium on the Future of Libraries
MIT’s Task Force on the Future of Libraries was charged with developing a vision of how the MIT Libraries could evolve to best advance the creation, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge, not only to support MIT’s mission but also to position the Institute as a leader in the reinvention of research libraries. Through discussions, open forums, and collaborative tools, the Task Force brought together the best thinking of faculty, staff, and students. Its recent report envisions the library as an open global platform rooted in shared values and mission; supported by innovative approaches to community and relationships, discovery and use, and stewardship and sustainability; and informed and enabled by an expanded emphasis on research and development.
