Intellectual Freedom and Ethics

In addition, the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee (IFC) will be bringing forward revisions to several interpretations to the Library Bill of Rights for approval by ALA Council in preparation for the 9th edition of The Intellectual Freedom Manual.  Among the interpretations proposed for revision are Diversity in Collection Development, Labels and Ratings Systems, Challenged Resources (formerly Challenged Materials), Advocating Intellectual Freedom (formerly Importance of Education to Intellectual Freedom) and Privacy.  

The IFC is actively seeking comment on the proposed revisions and will hold an open forum for comment during the IFC/FTRF Issues Briefing Session, Saturday, June 28, 3:00-4:00pm, Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), N109 – or attend a regular meeting of the IFC.  For a complete list of interpretations proposed for revision, go to ALA Connect: http://connect.ala.org/node/225148

In preparation for the 9th edition of the ALA Intellectual Freedom Manual and in response to member interest, the ALA Committee on Professional Ethics (COPE) is drafting an interpretation on copyright (comparable to interpretations in the Library Bill of Rights).  The draft statement is intended to take a core concept from the Code of Ethics (in this case, copyright), explain the underlying principles supporting the core concept, and provide some guidance on how to implement these principles.  The initial draft was prepared by a working group including members from COPE, the ALA Office for Information Technology Policy’s Advisory Copyright Education Subcommittee, and the ALA Committee on Legislation’s Subcommittee on Copyright.  The draft is available online at http://connect.ala.org/files/CopyrightInterprepretation.docx

COPE is seeking comment on the draft prior to its submission to ALA Council and will hold an open hearing during its first business meeting on Friday, June 27, 1:30-3:00pm, Las Vegas Convention Center, N101.
