Quick Review: Doin' Dewey Do you have a lot of books? Libraries have many, many books. Librarians group books by what they are about – the subject matter. Melvil Dewey, who lived from 1851 to 1931, invented a way to do this. Later he shortened his first name to Melvil, dropped his middle names and, for a short time, even spelled his last name as Dui.

Organizing a Library? Before Melvil Dewey invented the Dewey Decimal System, there was not a common way to organize libraries. Most buildings were made of wood. Libraries kept books in buckets so they could easily carry them out if there was a fire. Digital Citizenship Lessons for the Library. Today’s children are rarely satisfied with using only the library’s print materials and online databases. With the increasing sophistication of digital technologies, even young students can bypass the local librarian to search for resources, tools and information online through common search engines. Such freedom carries with it great responsibility. School librarians have always embraced the responsibility for teaching information literacy — critical skills for locating, evaluating and using information — but children also need to know the literacy of digital citizenship — how to conduct themselves safely and responsibly in the digital world.

Teaching Copyright. As today's tech-savvy teens become increasingly involved with technology and the Internet for learning, work, civic engagement, and entertainment, it is vital to ensure that they understand their legal rights and responsibilities under copyright law and also how the law affects creativity and innovation. This curriculum is designed to give teachers a comprehensive set of tools to educate students about copyright while incorporating activities that exercise a variety of learning skills.

Lesson topics include: the history of copyright law; the relationship between copyright and innovation; fair use and its relationship to remix culture; peer-to-peer file sharing; and the interests of the stakeholders that ultimately affect how copyright is interpreted by copyright owners, consumers, courts, lawmakers, and technology innovators.
