Artificial Intelligence, with its evolving capabilities, significantly impacts library operations and can enhance the learning experience for students. Teaching students how to ethically and effectively use AI is crucial in today’s educational landscape. By integrating AI as a supportive tool in libraries, we enhance learning experiences and prepare students for a world increasingly shaped by AI technologies.

In this context, Miranda and Susan will demonstrate how they have used crucial AI functions in their libraries:

  • Aiding in social media content creation through platforms like Canva and ChatGPT.
  • Streamlining academic title searches using tools such as Google Scholar and Bing Chat Copilot.
  • summarizing complex information efficiently with tools like PI.AI and GPT-3.
  • facilitating the creation of outlines and lesson plans through platforms like ChatGPT.

Our presenters will also discuss the importance of emphasizing the need for transparency in AI usage, ensuring students are familiar with the mechanisms, biases, and limitations of AI. This knowledge equips students with essential skills for future careers in a world where AI integration is becoming increasingly prevalent.
