The (Speculative) Futures of Libraries and Archives

The (Speculative) Futures of Libraries and Archives

With the emergence of new technologies and seeming digital access to the world's entire catalog of knowledge, what is the role of a library or an archive in tomorrow's world? What will it mean to collect, store, access, and curate knowledge in five, ten, twenty years? How will we, as individuals, and as an MIT community, relate to knowledge and artifacts of knowledge? This three hour workshop will dig into the nitty gritty of the current reality of libraries and archives and create a space to collaboratively create new visions of their roles in our lives (and our roles in theirs). The future of libraries and archives will be best ideated by librarians, library staff, and the communities they serve, so we hope you’ll join us!
