Our Challenge

ALA Code of EthicsV. We treat co-workers and
other colleagues with respect, fairness and good
faith, and advocate conditions of employment that
safeguard the rights and welfare of all employees
of our institutions.

VI. We do not advance private interests at the
expense of library users, colleagues, or our
employing institutions.
5
VII. We distinguish between our personal
convictions and professional duties and do not
allow our personal beliefs to interfere with
fair representation of the aims of our
institutions or the provision of access to their
information resources.

VIII. We strive for excellence in the profession
by maintaining and enhancing our own knowledge
and skills, by encouraging the professional
development of co- workers, and by fostering the
aspirations of potential members of the
profession.
