Last fall Provost Marty Schmidt requested the convening of an Ad Hoc Task Force on the Future of Libraries, charged with examining “how the MIT Libraries ought to evolve to best advance the creation, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge; and to serve as a leader in the reinvention of research libraries.” In pursuing this task, it is essential that the Task Force collect broad input from the MIT community, including faculty, staff, and students. To that end, you are invited to attend an open forum scheduled specifically for graduate students to share your ideas for what a bold new vision for MIT Libraries ought to include.
Register and join us on Tuesday, March 15, 3:30pm-5pm in 4-270. Key members of the Task Force will attend each of these meetings, and we are eager to hear your thoughts and engage in open discussion about the future of our Libraries. While registration is encouraged to ensure adequate room size, walk-in participation will be welcomed depending on space constraints. More information about the work of the Task Force can be found at our website. Thank you, and we hope to see you at one of these upcoming forums.
