The evolution of ethical standards for librarians parallels the development of librarianship as a profession. Many of the most important professional values have been tested and debated in the course of formulating and adopting codes of ethics for the profession. This book includes historical precedents and current examples of ethical issues facing the profession. It focuses on ethical dilemmas rather than more general management concerns or more technical legal requirements.
