You're Doing It Wrong: Librarians & Ethics
Presenter: TJ Lamanna

If you asked most librarians, we think they'd say they do their best  to follow the ALA's Code of Ethics and privacy guidelines. But when was  the last time you read them over? What about your familiarity with your state's laws and regulations around patron privacy and library use? Do  you find yourself caught between certain expectations of convenience,  user experience, or customer service that seem at odds with our professional ethics? Do you feel like there is an inconsistent  interpretation of ethics.
