National University Library reference and instruction librarian Dan Johnston discusses these concerns and other AI-related questions students are increasingly bringing to librarians in this clip from Internet Librarian Connect 2023.

A Librarian Looks at Oscars 2024: International Diversification Finally Bears Fruit
by Jessica Hilburn
While 2023 highlighted the blockbusters, and 2022 made strides toward better inclusivity, 2024 is an exciting mix of both. Two of the 10 Best Picture nominees were in the top 10 highest-grossing films of the year, two are internationally produced, three are predominantly in languages other than English, and three feature Black, Korean, or Native American protagonists. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' work toward more diversification seems to be finally bearing fruit, with voters bestowing nominations on a wide variety of deserving films. Among the variety of nominees are some wonderful standouts in smaller categories as well, one of which is of particular interest for those in the library field.
