MIT Releases Report on 'Future of Libraries'

October 25, 2016

The report is the culmination of a yearlong initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to determine "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," according to an announcement last October. The report, which contains the task force's recommendations, is available here.
