The aim of this paper is to show that the digital literacy should be understood in a much broader sense than it is now and that its full achievement is impossible if new digital rights are not introduced in the society and understood and accepted by the citizens. To prove their presumption that little is known about digital rights even among students the authors had conducted a small-scale research among LIS and non-LIS students at two different universities in the country, University of Zagreb and University of Dubrovnik. On the basis of findings 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 the users’ rights into library legislation.
