Abstract: Generative Artificial intelligence is a new technological development rapidly affecting the world. It is a technology developed to perform various tasks by exposing search terms to lots of data. However, the impact of generative AI is not encouraging the development of human knowledge, which is becoming dangerous to the present generation. Librarians as information custodians are, therefore, concerned about over-reliance on Artificial Intelligence as it destroys information authenticity, encourages information theft, disrupts mental health, and hinders socialization. It is, therefore, important for librarians to alert the world to strike a balance between generative AI, intellectual capacity building and knowledge development. Keywords: Generative AI, Intellectual capacity, Knowledge development, Librarians, Crisis.
