Uncovering Copyright Training/Needs Data – the Western U.S. Copyright Survey
Tuesday, Sep 29, 2020
12:00pm – 1:00pm
Presented by Patrick Newell, Anali Perry, Karen Grondin, and Rachel Bridgewater
The presenters will present a survey instrument and study developed to determine copyright knowledge and needs among public, academic, special, and school libraries. Starting with 11 states in the Western U.S. (and eventually nationally), we plan to survey librarians and education personnel regarding their prior training about copyright and the use of copyrighted materials; additionally, we will conduct focus groups for personnel who have related copyright needs, such as open education coordinators, online learning initiatives, and instructional designers. We seek the input of attendees to refine further survey development and to plan future uses for the disseminated data and report.
