    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.
