This half-day workshop aims to support and advance an ASIS&T AI community by connecting AI research and practice in library and information environments. We invite a broad range of participants who are already engaged in developing AI applications and solutions and are interested in learning about the opportunities and challenges in AI research, by discussing how to integrate empirical research findings into AI development. Through a panel discussion, lightning talks, a brainstorming session, breakout group conversations, and a plenary discussion, the workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to obtain feedback on preliminary and ongoing work, identify pressing challenges and critical questions of AI in library and information environments, and develop new research problems and approaches.
