Library Futures joins the Engelberg Center

A few months shy of our second anniversary, we are delighted to announce that Library Futures is joining the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy at NYU Law.

The Engelberg Center is a unique environment for scholars to examine the key drivers of innovation as well as the law and policy that best support innovation. As part of this merger, we will join a community of practitioners, scholars, students, and researchers working together to further knowledge and policy in the service of the public good. This partnership will bring Library Futures closer to Engelberg’s work on ownership of digital goods as well as their Gallery, Library, Archive, and Museum (GLAM) open access initiatives such as the GLAM-E Lab. We have a strong track record of success and are looking forward to building on this momentum with the support of our partners at the center.

As the Director of Library Futures, I am incredibly proud of this collaborative effort. Together with the Engelberg Center, including Executive Director Michael Weinberg and Co-Director Jason Schultz,  we are doubling down on our strategy, bringing continued focus and direction to our work and a new energy fueled by the community.

Our board will continue to contribute to the project in an advisory capacity, and our Board Chair Kyle K. Courtney will join the center as the Library Futures Fellow. Thank you for all your support over the past few years.

This announcement caps our whirlwind summer of activity and is an exciting next stage for the project. If you have any questions or ideas, please reach out to
