Author(s):

Dr. Manju Jain

Abstract:

Academic libraries play an important role in higher education by serving as indispensable hubs of knowledge and learning within university and college campuses Traditional library services in academic libraries encompass a range of core functions and offerings that support the academic and research needs of students, faculty, and researchers. These services include reference assistance, where librarians provide guidance in finding information and conducting research; circulation services, facilitating the borrowing and return of library materials; interlibrary loan services that enable access to resources beyond the library's collection; catalog services to help users locate specific items; access to periodicals, journals, and academic publications etc. In place of traditional library services AI-powered library services in academic libraries revolutionize the way students and researchers access and utilize information resources. These services harness artificial intelligence and machine learning to enhance various aspects of library operations, such as search and discovery, personalized recommendations, automated cataloging, and virtual assistance. AI-driven algorithms optimize the retrieval of relevant scholarly materials, aiding users in their research endeavors. Present study analyses the transition of traditional library services into AI powered library service through a table to understand easily. The study shows that academic library services are already in the process of transition into traditional to AI powered library services and the integration of AI in library services offers numerous benefits, but there are several challenges that need to be addressed to ensure its effective and ethical use. This study addressed some of the key challenges of AI powered library services and provided some suggestions to overcome the challenges.
