The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) DSS Numeric and Geospatial Services Discussion Group will host a virtual book panel comprised of contributors to The Rise of AI: Implications and Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Academic Libraries, a book that “collects projects, collaborations, and future uses from academic librarians who have begun to embrace AI in their work.”
Topics explored include machine translation, combining information literacy initiatives with AI literacy, fostering partnerships with other on-campus groups, and using AI to refine metadata. Sandy Hervieux, the virtual reference coordinator and liaison librarian at McGill University’s Humanities and Social Sciences Library in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Amanda Wheatley, the management, business, and entrepreneurship librarian, and expert for artificial intelligence and gamification in the library’s Digital Scholarship Hub at McGill University, are the editors of the work.
The virtual event will take place on April 17 at 2:30pm EST. Registration can be found here.
