Case Studies and Codes of Ethics: The Relevance of the ACS Experience to ALIA
Ferguson, Stuart; Salmond, Rachel; Al-Saggaf, Yeslam; Bowern, Mike; Weckert, John
Australian Library Journal, v54 n3 p299-308 Aug 2005
This paper comments on a recent "Code of Ethics" project conducted on behalf of the Australian Computer Society, and proposes a similar project for the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). It reviews the scope and methodology of the project, which developed a comprehensive set of case studies and related them to the ACS "Code of Ethics" and to specific standards of conduct in the "Code." It discusses a small selection of the case studies and suggests that a similar series for ALIA could assist in the provision of useful context for ALIA's "Statement on Professional Conduct," material for the profession's continuing professional development (CPD) programs and a stimulus to further ethical debate in the profession.
