Ethics Sin List

The list of "ethic sins" that should be avoided by librarians includes:
  • wearing the "lemon look" while serving patrons (sourpuss staff syndrome)
  • borrowing a controversial book via ILL rather than buy it for your library.....or not getting it at all to avoid controversy
  • not permitting young people to access materials or use services provided to others
