Description: Information literacy and scholarly communication librarians are working together to create avenues for increased collaboration in the classroom. The Framework for Information Literacy and the Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy white paper, plus continuing task force work within ACRL, demonstrates progress towards aligning scholarly communication education within undergraduate and graduate student information literacy outreach. This webcast will focus on how librarians can integrate copyright into the classroom with undergraduate and graduate students to raise awareness of not only ethically using others’ work, but also how to consider their rights and responsibilities as creators and copyright holders of their own work.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Share strategies for discussing copyright with students in order to build instructional literacy for librarians.
  • Contextualize copyright and Creative Commons licenses within information literacy instruction in order to increase professional knowledge about scholarly communication.
  • Raise awareness of different options for sharing scholarship and creative activity among librarians in order to close the loop in information literacy instruction.

Presenter(s): Stephanie Davis-Kahl, Scholarly Communications Librarian/Associate Professor, Illinois Wesleyan University; Molly Keener, Scholarly Communication Librarian, Wake Forest University
