AI and Us: Embracing the Opportunities for Professional Practice

AI has become ubiquitous in a very short space of time, but how many of us have been using it in our daily professional practice. This session will provide a forum for attendees to explore the potential uses of AI in library practice, including conversations about ethical implications of doing so. Led by Liz Walkley Hall, whose library has led AI integrity conversations on campus as well as developed and contributed to usage guides for students and researchers. Please come with your experiences, questions, thoughts, and challenges!
