“The time is right for MIT to articulate a bold new vision for a modern research library. I’m asking the Future of Libraries Task Force to think broadly and creatively about the unique role MIT Libraries should play as a leader in defining the future of libraries”
—Provost Martin A. Schmidt
Chris Bourg, the Director of Libraries, has convened an Ad Hoc Task Force on the Future of Libraries, comprised of faculty, staff, and students from across the Institute. Meet the task force members.
The Task Force is charged with seeking broad input from the MIT community and from domain experts on how the MIT Libraries ought to evolve and provide leadership in the reinvention of research libraries.
Read the full charge to see the breadth of what the task force will be exploring.
The Task Force would like to hear from you. What do you think? Got any great ideas?
