Through a culture that encourages innovation and collaboration, the MIT
Libraries are redefining the role of the 21st century library - making
collections more accessible than ever before, and shaping the future of
scholarly research. Library staff, at all levels, contribute to this spirit of
innovation and to the mission of promoting learning, discovery and the
advancement of knowledge at MIT and beyond. "Reinventing the Research Library:
The MIT Libraries in the 21st Century" is a short video that looks at how the
MIT Libraries are expanding beyond their traditional role to shape the
research library of the 21st century -creating innovative services, reaching
out to students and faculty, and leading efforts to increase global access to
MIT's scholarly work.

  
The MIT Libraries support the Institute's programs of research and study with
holdings of more than 2.9 million print volumes and 3.1 million special format
items, and terabytes of MIT-owned digital content. In addition, rare special
collections, Institute records, historical documents, and papers of noted
faculty are held in the Institute Archives and Special Collections. Library
resources and services are accessible to students and researchers through the
Libraries' website (http://libraries.mit.edu/), and library spaces are widely
available for both collaborative work and quiet study. Traditional library
resources are supplemented by innovative services for bioinformatics, GIS,
metadata, social science data, and research data management services, as well
as multimedia facilities and services for video production, conferencing,
webcasting and distance education. The Libraries utilize the Ex Libris Aleph
system for its public Web-based catalog and as the support system for user
service and processing functions. DSpace@MIT, a digital repository developed
over the past ten years by the MIT Libraries, serves to capture, preserve and
communicate the intellectual output of MIT's faculty and research community.
Other MIT repositories include: Dome, a second DSpace instance, providing
access to a sizable image collection and other digital collections owned by
the MIT Libraries; the MIT Geodata Repository for a diverse collection of GIS
Data; and MIT's DataVerse for licensed social science datasets. MIT Libraries
maintain memberships and affiliations in arXiv, Association of Research
Libraries, the BorrowDirect group, the Boston Library Consortium, DDI
Alliance, DuraSpace, HathiTrust, CLIR/Digital Library Federation, the
Coalition of Networked Information, EDUCAUSE, North East Research Libraries,
OCLC Research Library Partnership, and National Digital Stewardship Alliance.
