Book Description :

Public access to the internet is arguably the most important current development in library and information services. It presents a series of highly demanding issues for information professionals in all sectors. Public anxiety about harmful internet content and inappropriate use, particularly by children, continues to be debated. All this is against a background of ongoing concern about how the new technology affects legal and human rights areas such as copyright and other intellectual property; confidentiality, privacy, data protection and official secrecy; freedom of information; and harassment, obscenity and defamation.This book is a much-needed guide for information professionals requiring a fuller understanding of these areas of law and ethics, and provides essential guidance on access policy and management. Whilst working on the basic principle that freedom of expression and freedom of access to information are simultaneously human rights and fundamentals of librarianship, it also takes into account the ethical and legal ambiguity of internet provision and uset. A step-by-step guide to developing an internet access policy is offered, including guidance on controversial aspects such as surveillance and monitoring of use, and software filtering and blocking. Helpful appendices provide access to a range of current codes of conduct, guidance documents, internal policy documents and public policy documents, together with Council of Europe Guidelines originally drafted by the author. The major areas covered are: public access to information on the internet, the internet problem, the ethics of internet access management, the law and the internet, managing internet access, making a policy for public internet access.

Book Description :

Students come to the school library every day with questions ranging from “How many people live in China?” to “I need to find out how the Sun began for my science paper.” Helping students find the answers to their questions is one of the most important responsibilities school librarians have. In Introduction to Reference and Information Services in Today's School Library, one of America’s premier school library educators covers the A-Z of both reference and information services for today’s library.

This book examines information needs and behaviors, and provides strategies for assessing and meeting the informational needs of the school community. The book also addresses the conditions for optimum service: physical access (including virtual access), effective interaction and collaboration, instructional design, and systematic planning. Newer issues such as embedded librarianship, curation,collective intelligence, and web 2.0 intellectual property are also addressed. This book introduces the entering professional, and updates practitioners, to current standards and useful strategies.

Book Description :

Ethics and Values in Librarianship: A History addresses the processes of development of library and information sciences, largely but not exclusively in a western context. It focuses on the field’s ethics and values. Here, Wallace Koehler, a leading researcher in the area of information ethics, debunks the prevailing notion that library and information science concepts and ethics have and remain constant. He demonstrates that in almost all areas of practice, this is simply not so. Instead of staying the same, our professional ethics and standards have evolved or shifted in their application as well as in the recognition of those standards by practitioners and users. Some of these changes are of very recent etiology. Topics covered include: · the freedom of expression, · intellectual freedom, · libraries and democracy, · intellectual property, copyright, and fair use and, · professional qualifications and credentialing. Koehler examines the development of and changes to library and information science through practice and the writings of library and information theorists and practitioners from Varro during the reign of Julius Caesar to the present. He documents technological and social changes that have had foundational implications for the information professions and argues that ethical standards may be redefined overtime and new standards may emerge, older precepts and newer ones coexist. Not only a history, this is also one of the few contemporary books suitable for use in foundational courses and courses covering information and library ethics.
