Call for papers: 2014 FAIFE satellite meeting in Geneva

By Alejandra Martínez del Prado

FAIFE invites proposals for presentations at its pre-conference programme in Geneva, Switzerland on 13 and 14 August 2014.

Librarians, archivists and other information workers all over the world are quite aware of their profession's ethical implications. Archivists have already published their international code in 1996 (the ICA Code of Deontology). On the library side, despite the fact that in more than 60 countries library associations have developed and approved a national code of ethics for librarians, there was no international code until August 2012, when the Governing Board of IFLA approved the new IFLA Code of Ethics for Librarians and Other Information Workers. Globethics.net Foundation based in Geneva took part in its elaboration.

Theme: Ethical Dilemmas in the Information Society: How Codes of Ethics Help to Find Ethical Solutions

Submission deadline: 4 January 2014

For complete details, see the full call for papers on the IFLA WLIC 2014 website.
