Future of Libraries Open Forum for Undergraduates
As you may recall, last fall Provost Marty Schmidt asked me to convene an Ad Hoc Task Force on the Future of Libraries, which has been 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, I would like to invite you to attend one of the open forums that we have scheduled specifically for undergraduate and graduate students and to share your ideas for what a bold new vision for MIT Libraries ought to include.
Please note: Although the March 3 forum is intended for undergraduates, and the March 15 for graduate students, all students are welcome at each event.
Thursday, March 3, 4pm-5:30pm (Undergraduate Students)
Register here: libcal.mit.edu/event/2376467
Tuesday, March 15, 3:30pm-5pm (Graduate Students)
Register here: libcal.mit.edu/event/2376486
Key members of the Task Force and I 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.
Information about the work of the Task Force can be found at: future-of-libraries.mit.edu.
Thank you, and we hope to see you at one of these upcoming forums.
