Abstract: [Purpose/Significance] This paper aims to investigate the influencing factors and guiding strategies of Generative AI like ChatGPT on digital literacy education in university libraries, which will provide reference models and case studiesfor the domestic digital literacy education workers in colleges and universities, and facilitate the development of a localized framework for digital literacy in Chinese universities based on artificial intelligence. [Design/Methodology] By employing empirical research methodology, the test paper was designed based on the existing five dimensions of digital literacy, and content analysis of the test answers was conducted in three dimensions: knowledge content, competency, and emotional value. [Findings/Conclusion] We have identified four key characteristics of the knowledge content of digital literacy education within the scope of artificial intelligence, and have summarized the guidance and impact of artificial intelligence tools on students' higher-order thinking skills and emotional value. [Originality/Value] This paper focuses on agranular analysis of the impact of artificial intelligence tools on digital literacy education, and realizes the effect testing and result analysis of digital literacy learning conducted with multiple individuals simultaneously using ChatGPT generative AI tools.
