IFLA Endorses International Code of Ethics for Librarians and Information Workers

"On August 12, the Governing Board of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) endorsed a new International Code of Ethics for Librarians and Information Workers. A working group from IFLA’s Committee on Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE) drafted and consulted extensively on an international code of ethics for librarians, drawing on hundreds of comments from IFLA members and non-members.

Five members from five different countries comprised the working group, all of whom are current or former members of the FAIFE committee: Loida Garcia-Febo, Anne Hustad, Hermann Rosch, Paul Sturges and Amelie Vallotton."

 

The full text of the Code of Ethics and a summary version are now online:
