Hello Colleagues,

We are excited to announce that we are accepting proposals for chapters
in the upcoming ACRL publication, /The Rise of AI: Implications and
Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Academic Libraries/. Please
consider submitting a chapter or sharing within your networks.


In this book we aim to take a snapshot in time of the current state of
AI in academic libraries. By compiling case studies on the use of such
technology, we can begin to understand how librarians are responding to
the potential for yet another substantial change in the way we do our work.

Artificial Intelligence is often feared due to hyped up news articles
that claim 'robots are coming to take our jobs'. While this may be a
possibility, it is not an inevitability. The use of AI is more than just
a replacement of the librarian, it can be a tool adopted in everyday
practice. We aim to collect chapters that reflect how AI is being
evaluated or adopted within user services and instruction, collections
and technical services, research support, and other special projects or

Suggested topics

   * User services and Instruction
       o Impacts of AI on Information Literacy
       o Workshops about AI
       o Workshops using or teaching how to use AI
       o Privacy and surveillance instruction, ethics of AI
   * Collections and Technical Services
       o Cataloguing or metadata creation
       o Tracking electronic resource behaviour
       o Linked data applications
       o Natural language processing and other database algorithms
       o Digital collections and archives
   * Research Support
       o Research data management
       o Bibliometrics and altmetrics tracking
       o Augmented literature reviews
       o AI use in data collection and storage
   * Special Projects and Collaborations
       o AI hubs created on campus or with library involvement
       o Partnerships with campus research centres or outside parties
       o Other initiatives with LIS related impacts

Note that this is not an exhaustive list and we welcome proposals on
other AI ventures within academic libraries.

        Subject: Women Writers Online: Free in March 2020 & Teaching Resources

Dear all,

We're happy to confirm that Women Writers Online will again be free for the
month of March, in celebration of Women's History Month. This collection
includes more than 400 texts written or translated by women between 1526 and
1850 (for a current list see here:
http://www.wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/texts/titleURLs.html). This is also a call
for participants in the WWP's teaching partners program.

Teaching partners collaborate with us to create activities, assignments, and
syllabi. You can read more about the program and see some of the materials
developed by our partners here:


These include assignments that use not only WWO but also Women Writers in Review
(http://wwp.northeastern.edu/review/), an open-access collection of around 600
reviews and other documents that respond to texts by the authors in Women
Writers Online.

We also welcome proposals that make substantive use of the newly released Women
Writers Vector Toolkit, which supports web-based explorations of relationships
between words in the WWO collection, using word embedding models
(http://lab.wwp.northeastern.edu/wwvt/). (No idea what that means? Start here:

If you're interested in becoming a teaching partner, please email us for more
information. If you'd like to work with Women Writers Online prior to March,
and you don't have institutional access, we are happy to set up a trial (more
details on WWO licensing and trials are here:
http://wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/license/). And finally, if you have questions
about any of the WWP's publications, or suggestions for texts that we should
add to our collections, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you very much!

All our best,

Julia & Sarah
