Copyright knowledge of faculty at two academic health science campuses: Results of a survey

Academic Article


  • To determine whether health sciences faculty are sufficiently knowledgeable about copyright, fair use, and related precepts in their use of materials for teaching and research purposes, librarians at two comparable institutions, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA), conducted a Web survey regarding copyright knowledge among their respective faculty. Responses were similar from both institutions despite the fact that UTHSCSA faculty had access to a more coordinated copyright education effort. Most respondents self-reported at least a limited familiarity with copyright law and fair use. © 2006 Elsevier Inc.
