AI4LAM is an international, participatory community focused on advancing the use of artificial intelligence in, for and by libraries, archives and museums. 

Community call: 12 December 2023

We will return to our Community Calls a week earlier than usual, with December's call taking place on 12 December 2023 to avoid clashing with the holidays. 

The AI4LAM co-chairs, Neil Fitzgerald (British Library) and Emmanuelle Bermès (École nationale des chartes - PSL),  will be leading us through the year in review, so do come along for what is sure to be an interesting reflection. Agenda can be found here.
