Public libraries face ethical issues all the time. This session aims to create an open discussion about library core values and ethics.
Inspired by a session at the 2020 Public Library Association Conference, our program provides real library ethical scenarios, followed by a discussion with a panel of experienced trainers. We will discuss sticky situations when personal ethics and professional ethics differ.
This is a highly interactive session; audience participation is encouraged. Attendees will leave with a list of helpful resources and books.
