    The Chief Collection Development Officers of Large Research Libraries Interest Group (CCDO) will hold its annual open meeting on Friday, June 21, 2024, at 2-3:30pm Eastern / 1-2:30pm Central / noon-1:30pm Mountain / 11am-12:30-pm Pacific. This will be a Zoom webinar-style public event. Our theme is artificial intelligence and collections.

    Since the autumn 2022 launch of OpenAI's chatbot, ChatGPT, the world has begun considering the myriad ways in which artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning may debatably enhance or threaten the human experience.  IFLA stated in a November 2023 working paper that AI is likely to change everyday knowledge work. Research library collections and collection development will not be exempt from the impacts of AI tools and applications that are increasingly popular and ubiquitous in teaching, learning, and scholarship. We are facing new use cases for content discovery, access, and study as well as new challenges to user privacy, publisher licensing restrictions, and defining AI literacy and ethics within our institutional research ecosystems and broader information networks.

    Please join us for an engaging session with the following esteemed speakers:

    Fair Use, AI, and Electronic Resources Licensing: How to Retain Campus Rights – Rachael G. Samberg

    Rachael will provide context for how scholars are using AI, and what rights our campus users need libraries to secure in eResources license agreements. This context will be framed within the broader legal and regulatory landscape for AI usage and training. She will then offer specific strategies and language for negotiating sufficient AI usage and training rights in eResource licenses.

    Towards a Books Data Commons for AI – Derek Slater

    Derek will discuss the recent white paper for which he is a coauthor. It was informed by a series of workshop discussions and maps possible paths to building a books data commons or a cloud-based way to make knowledge in books more accessible for AI training.  It outlines key questions relevant to stakeholders.

    Speaker Bios

    Rachael G. Samberg is an attorney and the program director of UC Berkeley's Office of Scholarly Communication Services. A Duke Law graduate, Rachael practiced intellectual property litigation at Fenwick & West LLP for seven years before spending six years at Stanford Law School's library, where she was Head of Reference & Instructional Services and a Lecturer in Law. Rachael speaks throughout the country about scholarly communication, copyright, licensing, privacy, and ethics. She has been project director for multiple NEH-funded grants to develop and teach scholars legal literacies for text and data mining in U.S. and cross-border research contexts, and is widely published on these matters. Currently, she is supporting regulatory analysis of Digital Millennium Copyright Act exemptions to support text and data mining research, and engaging in analysis and advocacy for use and training of artificial intelligence in research and scholarly enterprises.

    Derek Slater is a tech policy strategist focused on media, communications, and information policy. Previously, he helped build Google's public policy team from 2007-2022, serving as the Global Director of Information Policy during the last three years. He led a global team of subject matter experts on access to information, content regulation, and online safety, and testified before legislators in the US, UK, and elsewhere around the globe. Along with deep strategy and subject matter expertise, Derek is a skilled campaigner and coalition builder. For instance, he worked with start-ups, venture capitalists, and civil society to organize campaigns around online copyright in the US and Europe, including the successful defeat of the overreaching Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in 2012. Similarly, as Head of Policy Strategy & Campaigns for Google Fiber, he mobilized organizations at national and local levels to pass broadband legislation in Nashville and San Francisco, which later became the basis for federal action. For this and other work, the Coalition for Local Internet Choice gave him its Private Sector Champion award in 2016. Before his time at Google, Derek was the Activism Coordinator for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the first student fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. He holds a bachelor's degree in government from Harvard College.
