Purpose of the SRLT meeting: The Libraries’ Senior Leadership Team (SRLT), consisting of the libraries’ senior leadership, meets regularly to confer on matters of libraries’ policy and strategy.

SRLT functions as a venue for:
As of January 2024, the Libraries’ SRLT is comprised of:
The Director of the Libraries also has oversight of the MIT Press, so the Director of the MIT Press is included in all SRLT communications channels; and is an occasional participant in SRLT meetings. Likewise, various Libraries individuals or groups join SRLT on an as-needed basis.
SRLT meets weekly, on Thursday mornings, and maintains an active email list and Slack channel. Libraries staff are welcome to contact SRLT at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, concerns, or requests to join SRLT for a dialogue.
As of January 2024, groups that are formally sponsored by SRLT (meaning the group has a formal charge, as well as a named SRLT sponsor who is accountable for the group’s success) include:
Please note that there are many additional groups that exist and carry out critical work across the Libraries, many of which are documented on our StaffWeb here. The intent of the list above is to identify those groups with a direct reporting relationship to SRLT.
