Open Session

Call for Presentation Proposals


This is a call for presentation proposals for the Committee on Free Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE) program at the Milan World Library and Information Congress in Milan, August 23-27, 2009.

The ethical dimensions of the day to day practice of librarianship are not discussed as much as they should be. Yet almost every decision (acquiring or not acquiring a certain document, giving access to certain websites or not, providing information and guidance on controversial topics, and many others) has ethical implications. In this session IFLA/FAIFE intends to give a platform for discussion of such issues.

Colleagues are invited to contribute short presentations (10-15 minutes maximum) based on their experience, or experience of which they have special knowledge. These contributions could consist of:

- Anecdotes and case studies: treatment of customers (equality – inequality), collection building (neutrality – censorship), subject indexing (neutrality – ideology), library fees (exclusion – inclusion), banning of books (censorship – freedom of access to information), privacy of data, conflicts between librarians and public authorities etc.

- Reports on how a Code of Ethics or an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) was implemented at a national or institutional level; how discussions and initiatives on ethical topics were supported or obstructed by whomsoever; campaigning or lobbying on ethical issues and how supporters were won and opponents combated

Abstracts are welcome. They should state the author(s) name and affiliation, email address, and title of the presentation. They should amount to no more than 100 words and should be sent no later than *28th February 2008* to:
E-mail: Hermann.Roesch@xxxxxxxxxxx

Decision on acceptance of proposals will be made by *March 15th*.

Papers accepted will be due before *May 15th 2008*. They should be no more than 2000 words long and concentrate on events and experience rather than theory. Citations to the literature are not required. Accepted papers and (in the event of receipt of more suitable proposals than the time of the session allows) other relevant papers based on good proposals, will be made available on the IFLA FAIFE Webpages.

Please note that all expenses, including registration for the conference, travel, accommodation etc., are the responsibility of the authors of the accepted papers.
