Generative AI for Research Workshop – For Librarians & Library Staff Only

Generative AI for Research Workshop – For Librarians & Library Staff Only In-Person / Online

This session is designed as a gentle introduction to Generative AI (GenAI) as well as to explore the emerging potential and pitfalls of GenAI tools designed for academic research. 

This hands-on workshop is for all library staff no matter how familiar or they are with GenAI tools. The session will include an optional introductory prompt design activity, followed by more in-depth activities to explore the use of GenAI tools designed specifically to assist in the literature review process. 

During the workshop, we will explore and evaluate different GenAI tools. Your knowledge and expertise in your subject domains or other areas of expertise will be crucial in assessing these tools. To get the most out of the planned activities, it would be beneficial to bring with you some topics or research questions you are familiar with so that you can more easily evaluate the accuracy of the outputs of the GenAI research tools we will be working with. Thank you for your participation. Your feedback will be invaluable in shaping how we present these tools in future workshops and will be shared back to all workshop participants and eventually to all library staff.

Please join us for a collaborative session of learning, discussion, and discovery. Help us understand how Generative AI can best meet the needs of the researchers in your subject areas
