Professional Codes of Ethics for Librarians by IFLA


  • Librarians all over the world are well aware of their profession’s ethical implications. In more than 60 countries library associations have developed and approved a national code of ethics for librarians. But a similar document on an international level adopted by IFLA didn’t exist until 2012. During 2010 and 2012 a working group from FAIFE drafted and consulted extensively on a draft international code of ethics for librarians and other information workers. Hundreds of comments from IFLA Members and Non-Members were received to the draft, and a final version was prepared for the endorsement by the IFLA Governing Board. The “IFLA Code of Ethics for Librarians and Other Information Workers” was approved endorsed in August 2012.
