According to this poll, when asked to compare the prevalence of the stereotypical view that scientists are most likely to be white males to 10 years ago, 60% of science educators said that more students are aware that scientists can come from any demographic group. In the same poll, 55% of science educators said their students still see scientists as most likely to be males. [...]25% said that although more students (compared to 10 years ago) are aware that science can be a diverse field, they do not connect those opportunities with their own demographic group. Teachers can promote the idea that science provides a useful foundation for a variety of careers either in science or that build on science (ASPIRES 2013). [...]teachers can demonstrate the importance of learning science, regardless of career aspirations, by empowering students to weigh in, in an informed manner, on scientific questions important to their lives, such as those that appear in the news or government debates. [...]teachers might help their students better understand climate science by engaging them in the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center's Invader ID citizen science project where they would help identify invasive marine invertebrates in order to track changes in coastal environments.
This presentation focuses on data driven research from both a survey and in person interviews to articulate a roadmap for digital collection managers to navigate copyright challenges stemming from the adoption of standardized rights statements and licenses. Barriers to implementation of the RightsStatements.org statements and Creative Commons licenses will be described, including methods to remove such objections to using the standardized rights statements. Additionally, the research will outline the workflows of institutions that have been successful in the application of RightsStatements.org statements, what barriers they met, and the methods that were used to overcome the challenges they faced.
