A huge thank you to Lise Brin. Program Officer / Agente de programme @ Canadian Association of Research Libraries/Association des bibliothèques de recherche du Canada for compiling this list of pertinent, thought-jarring items on #artificialintelligence and the implication for #libraries.  We’ll be discussing this @ CFLA-FCAB’s National Forum, May 2nd in Regina (co-located with Sasktachewan’s Library Conference). Read, reflect, and ready yourself to provide input and inform the CFLA-FCAB Board for positioning libraries in the age of #AI.
