Thank you for taking the time to read this guide!

"Generative artificial intelligence (AI) is a relatively new technology that is developing quickly. Like the internet in general, these AI tools, like ChatGPT or Google Bard, are neither good or bad when it comes to finding and using information. Instead, they represent a new way in which we can interact with information." (source: https://libguides.slcc.edu/)

Generative AI and your library:

When it comes to using AI in your research, a librarian can help you learn to critically engage with generative AI tools across all phases of the research process, from formulating your research questions and research techniques, to finalizing your research product.  Librarians can also help you learn how AI can be used in research, coding, & creative work, as well as be aware of ethical and equity issues in how AI is managed and used. 

Your experience is important to us:

Everyone is learning about this rapidly changing tool. One of the best ways to learn is to interact with it, think and talk about it with others, and share your experience. As librarians, we invite and welcome your ideas and questions.

Generative AI and your class:

At WPI professors have broad discretion and many valid perspectives on whether, how, and when students can use ChatGPT or other content produced by generative artificial intelligence in assignments and projects. We've gathered some resources here that describe or give examples of approaches that professors are taking here and at other universities.  Be sure to check with your professor to understand their perspective and expectations. 

This is a new experimental guide. We welcome suggestions of any kind from everyone in the community. Please email us at reslib@wpi.edu.
