About the Event

This webinar provides some perspectives on AI technology for the library and how libraries have currently employed it into their eco-systems in easy, efficient and empowering ways. We will also learn how the library has been a driving force in the further development of AI technology and during times of crisis how it has been an asset to the library services for users.
