Library-inspired artificial intelligence

October 29, 2018

Nicole Coleman, Digital Research Architect, Stanford Libraries

The digitization of everything in the library initially meant that we could deliver content over the network. But that opportunity introduced a new challenge for discovery: incomplete metadata and lack of context. The explosion of data science practices in recent years has made discovery exponentially more challenging while, at the same time, providing the tools to improve discovery. Investigating the changing research practices across the university, Nicole Coleman, Digital Research Architect for Stanford Libraries, learned that curation of information is more important than it has ever been. To support research, we need to provide librarians with the power tools of artificial intelligence.
