To prove their presumption that little is known about digital rights even among students, the authors conducted small-scale research among LIS and non-LIS students at two different universities in Croatia - the University of Zagreb and the University of Dubrovnik. On the basis of the findings, the authors concluded that LIS educators and librarians have special responsibilities as regards digital rights: educators should reformulate study programmes and incorporate the topic of digital rights, while librarians should strive to speak for their users and incorporate users’ rights into library legislation.
