An Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) task force has started work to explore how the consortium can pilot artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology to advance the objectives and values of academic librarianship.

A result of the task force’s work will be a report to OCUL Directors in spring 2024 that will provide an informed, strategic perspective on machine learning applications and their relevance as OCUL initiatives.

As part of a comprehensive plan for the financial sustainability of Ontario’s post-secondary sector, a recent Blue-Ribbon Panel report outlined recommendations to achieve a sustainable future for the province’s universities and colleges.
