Originally scheduled for January 4, 2018, this CopyTalk is being postponed to April 5.
Sara will discuss her study that evaluated librarian confidence and comprehension following an expert-led fair use training session. The results, though limited in scope, provide encouraging evidence that librarians can tackle the concept of fair use when provided with appropriate training. Both the level of confidence and the level of comprehension rose after the librarian participants were provided with training, indicating that the training did have an impact. Further evidence of impact was revealed by the survey distributed two weeks after the training wherein some librarians noted that they had had the opportunity to use the skills learned in the training workshop during their daily work. The findings could contribute to the enhancement of copyright in libraries training and workshops.
Sara Benson was a practicing lawyer before teaching at the University of Illinois College of Law. Now she is also a librarian with an MLIS degree from the iSchool at Illinois.
