Free Core webinar: Walking the talk: realizing ethical considerations
Date: Tuesday, August 10, 2021
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.
Description: Tailored to administrators and managers, this webinar provides
an overview of the recently released “Cataloguing Code of Ethics” and
highlights particular areas of the Code in which library leadership can
meaningfully support the Code in equity, diversity, inclusion, and
accessibility (EDIA) initiatives. A panel of members from the Cataloguing
Ethics Steering Committee will explain the engagement process in developing
the Code, the work being done to raise awareness of the Code, and the
importance of including the work of cataloguing in an institution’s
commitments to EDIA.
At the end of this webinar, attendees will:
understand why cataloging work requires ethical considerations,
recognize how cataloguing ethics relate to other ethical aspects of
library services, and
have focussed conversations about cataloguing ethics with their staff
Who should attend?
