As librarians consider the implications of generative artificial intelligence (AI) for our students and scholars, important questions around the ethical use of these tools and ways to properly credit AI generated work abound. This webinar offers insight into how librarians can work through these questions and support the citation and ethical use of generative AI to our campus communities in learning and research.

 In this webinar you will:

  • Consider the process and experience of creating citation and annotated resources to address varied facets of generative AI use in the classroom
  • Understand how campus contexts and considerations can influence and help scope librarian engagement with generative AI
  • Explore nuance and ethical uses of generative AI in the higher education context
  • Discover citation resources to support students using generative AI in their learning

Together we will examine how generative AI might be used as an information tool in higher education and contemplate the role academic librarians could have in our campus conversations around these resources.
