What is it about?
Research has shown that incorporating AI into libraries strategic plans of rendering future-ready library services is missing. This study develops an Artificial Intelligence Innovative Library Services Conceptual Framework (AI-LSICF) that can motivate librarians to consider AI a technology that can foster an alternative innovative service delivery in the face of technology disruption and unforeseen circumstances like the Coronavirus pandemic.

Why is it important?
AI can foster intelligent decisions for retrieving and sharing information for learning and research. The (AI-LSICF), an artificial intelligence library services innovative conceptual framework can provide new insight into how AI technology can be used to deliver value-added innovative library services to achieve digital transformation. It will encourage library and information professionals to adopt AI to complement effective service delivery.

Artificial intelligence in academic libraries: An environmental scan
The authors reviewed scholarly articles, university libraries’ strategic plans, and library programming to determine if any reference to AI was being made and in what context. Top research universities in the United States and Canada were considered. The primary goal was to discover what role the librarian will play in an AI-dominant future, as well as how libraries are responding to this change. Findings indicated a lack of response or awareness to the current AI trend, though a small number of institutions were found to be participating in or creating their own AI hubs.
