ALISE Information Ethics Special Interests Group

The Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) has an Information Ethics Special Interest Group (IE-SIG) that has recently completed a Position Statement on Information Ethics in LIS Education.

I have been waiting to blog this for news about whether it is going to be officially adopted by ALISE or what authority it has as the IE-SIG’s position statement, but decided not to wait anymore, as it is significant enough to share as the position statement of the sub-group in ALISE that is concerned with information ethics. I will post an update if there are further developments.

This is an important statement on an area of LIS education that many feel has been de-emphasized over the years.
