The MIT Libraries supports and serves a global community that is richer for its diversity and strengthened by its commitment to justice. As President Reif said, “we do some of our best work when we turn outward to the world.” To that end, we’ve created displays of books, DVDs, and music authored by people from the nations affected by recent executive orders on immigration, namely: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The materials in these displays can be checked out from the library as usual. We encourage you to browse and borrow!
The MIT Libraries are committed to the open exchange of knowledge across borders and cultures and to the values of equality, openness, inclusion and respect. See our full statement regarding the recent immigration order for further details.
