Abstract

In 2016, after a year-long effort involving over two dozen faculty from multiple disciplines, MIT released the MIT Future of Libraries Report, which articulates a vision for libraries that advances “the promise of a truly open and interactive digital library of knowledge.” Implementing this vision requires a reevaluation of nearly all aspects of library work, from organizational design, systems, and even a new articulation of core professional values and identities. This talk will focus on the concept of radical collaboration, in the context of remaking libraries to advance an open knowledge future.
