International Federation of Library Associations Endorses Code of Ethics

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) recently endorsed and adopted a Code of Ethics for Librarians and Other Information Workers.

The final text is the result of extensive consultations in 2011 and 2012 with hundreds of IFLA members and non-members.

The Code emphasizes access to information, anti-discrimination principles, the protection of personal data, a balance between users' and creators' rights in copyright matters, as well as neutrality and an unbiased stance regarding collection, access and service.

The IFLA website features many national library association codes of ethics.
