OCLC/LJ Online Symposium: The Ethics of Innovation

Register here

A discussion of ethics has been part of the professional landscape since 1903 when Mary Plummer, ALA President, presented the first code of ethics for librarians. Since then, the information services landscape has only become more challenging and complex.

Join OCLC and Library Journal online for the second “Virtual Symposium” as they discuss the ways in which ethical considerations affect innovation, privacy issues and how libraries deliver services. The discussion will be led by:

  • Liza Barry-Kessler, Managing Partner, Privacy Counsel, LLC
  • Gary Price, Founder and Editor of ResourceShelf and former Director of Online Information Resources for Ask.com
  • Wayne Bivens-Tatum, Philosophy and Religion Librarian, Princeton University Library

The online discussion will continue after 3:00 p.m. with a 1-hour Twitter forum moderated by Joe Murphy  (@libraryfuture), Science Librarian for the Kline Science Library at Yale University. Several other Library Journal and OCLC folks will be reading/responding to Tweets during that time as well.

No travel, no cost. Just insight.
