Abstract / Description

What do ethics mean in the context of Information and Knowledge Management in the business sector? Professional practice in librarianship and information management rarely approaches the life-and-death situations characteristic of medical practice, or the life-changing circumstances characteristic of legal practice. It is perhaps understandable then that the professional ethics of information work has never attained the same status as medical or legal ethics. Nevertheless over recent decades there has been growing recognition that professional information work of involves significant ethical issues.
