Abstract: The adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning systems in private and public spheres is rapidly growing. How can these developments impact both everyday practices and the broader social mission of libraries? IFLA's new statement sets out some key principles. The rapid pace of AI development and adoption raises crucial questions about intellectual freedom, equity and privacy, automation, the evolution of necessary digital literacy skills, relevant Intellectual Property policy frameworks, and more. The new IFLA FAIFE statement aims to outline key considerations for the use of AI and ML technologies in the library sector, and suggest the roles which libraries should strive to take on in a society with growing AI integration.
