Year-End Topics
by Brandi Scardilli

As 2021 comes to a close, COVID is still with us (Database Review, page 30), anti-racism education is as important as ever (“Engaging Children in Anti-Racism Work at Your Library,” page 14), and what entities rule the internet continues to be a contentious issue (“A New Proposal Seeks to Make the Internet a Public Good,” page 18). These topics will continue to be important in 2022, it seems, but, hopefully, the pandemic will well and truly be considered over by the end of next year. Another topic we often grapple with is that the use of AI is now commonplace. Several articles touch on the implications of this: George Pike talks about AI-based hiring bias on page 26, Bruno Herrmann suggests best practices for integrating machine translation into your organization on page 32, Linda Pophal studies how content marketers are using AI on page 36, and Kashyap Kompella calls for AI accountability on page 40.

Happy Reading,Brandi Scardilli
