          Abstract

          As a relatively new university press director intent on future‐proofing the MIT Press during a time of rapid change, a crucial question for me is how to honor a legacy of excellence in content, design, and production as we move into the future as part of an educational institution committed to experimentation, invention, and open information access. For us, the answer is that we not only embrace it but actively participate in creating and defining that future. This article provides a high‐level overview of current strategic priorities and objectives at the MIT Press, focused mainly on the book side of the house.
