Please join us on April 5th for “Assessing Librarians’ Confidence and Comprehension in Explaining Fair Use Following an Expert Workshop” presented by Sara Benson, Copyright Librarian at the University of Illinois.
Sara will discuss her study to measure both academic librarian confidence and comprehension of fair use. The results, though limited in scope, provide encouraging evidence that appropriate training, even on a time-limited level, can help library professionals improve their knowledge of fair use. Testing revealed that the level of confidence and comprehension rose after the academic librarian participants were provided with the three-hour fair use training. The survey results collected two weeks after the training demonstrated that some librarians had the opportunity to use the skills learned in the training workshop in their daily work.
Sara Benson is an Assistant Professor and the Copyright Librarian at the University of Illinois Library. She has a JD, a Masters of Law, and an MSLIS and enjoys discussing and researching the many contours of copyright as it impacts educators and creators. You can find her podcast (titled ©hat or “Copyright Chat”) at library.illinois.edu/scp or on iTunes.
