LYRASIS Polite Debate Society presents

Operating Principals and Standards:  Engaging Responsibly With Users in Information Organizations

Wednesday September 12th

1:00-2:30 ET

Librarians are challenged daily by ongoing ethical quandaries involving service to our users. New and challenging situations also arise daily, stemming from the rapidly changing technology landscape, the changing nature of library use, and our need to help users to the best of our ability.

Many librarians had, perhaps, a cursory review of the ALA Code of Ethics during their library school experience, but not until confronted with real-life situations can we truly find a context for applying this code-along with the rule of law-effectively.

Join our panel, representing academic, public, and special libraries as they explore some challenging scenarios that will help us all to better understand and apply ethical principles to our daily work.
