Reinventing the Research Library: The MIT Libraries in the 21st Century

I was looking at the videos MIT Libraries have posted, and this one caught my eye. It's on the long side (8+ min) but nicely done.  Of particular note to me, starting at about 5:46, they discuss MIT's commitment to open access - as far as is possible, all articles published by MIT faculty are also housed in their archives, and available to anyone with internet access. The Institute Archive is part of the Libraries.
