Apologies for cross-postings
Dear list members,
Bridgeman Education is currently investigating how images from Wikipedia and search engines such as Google are retrieved and used for educational use.
At a time when some institutions are calling on staff to remove images taken off Google from their internal networks, there is increasing awareness of copyright issues and very opposing views on acceptable use – particularly at different levels within the institution.
Our Project team wish to substantiate existing data gained through focus groups and  would like to hear from the community at all levels – deans, school and faculty heads, tutors, curriculum leaders, librarians and of course the students themselves.
Respondents will only be required to give a short telephone interview or questionnaire sharing their views on use of images from search engines, quality of metadata and file size, level of use and attitudes to copyright, plagiarism, fair use, fair dealing and how they see images used in education in the future.
Bridgeman Education is carrying out this survey as part of a UK government funded project to research the future of e-learning, technology in education and the issues associated with providing useful access to learning materials.  For more information on the project see: SILVER (www.silvereducation.org)
Please confirm your interest via the email address below and we will contact you with further details.
Responses will be treated in confidence and no names will be published. A summary of the research will be fed back to and shared with those who have been kind enough to give their time.  Participants from any institution or country are welcome.
Please reply to:
Thank you very much!
