CLEARer Dialogues with AI: Unpacking Prompt Engineering for Librarians Webcast

It’s not too late to join Choice at 1:00pm Central on Tuesday, September 19, for the LibTech Insights (LTI) webinar “CLEARer Dialogues with AI: Unpacking Prompt Engineering for Librarians,” with ACRL Vice-President/President-Elect Leo S. Lo.

As we navigate an era where generative artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping information discovery and interaction, it’s more crucial than ever for librarians to grasp the intricacies of AI-assisted interactions. In this webinar, we explore the importance of prompt engineering—a skill pivotal for optimizing AI interactions. This session offers unique insights into how librarians can leverage AI more effectively, enhancing their capacity to support research, instruction, and user engagement.

In this webinar you’ll gain valuable insights into:

  • The significance of AI literacy among academic library employees and the prevalent challenges in the current landscape
  • The fundamental role of prompt engineering in maximizing the value derived from AI applications
  • An understanding of the CLEAR framework, a tool designed for effective communication with AI systems
  • Real-world examples of how the CLEAR framework can enhance interactions with AI models like GPT-4

We’ll delve into the broader implications of AI and prompt engineering on future library practices, including potential changes in information literacy instruction, research assistance, and content curation. 

Join us for this essential session to navigate the dynamic AI-influenced information landscape, and bring your questions for an interactive Q&A discussion.
