We discuss it as it comes up, but I don't have a specific section in my syllabus set aside for it. I try to plant the seed of 'cataloger's responsibility' when and where possible. The issue of censorship comes up, especially when discussion subject cataloging, etc. 

Would you considering posting your list of articles?  That would be helpful.

I am curious to know if any of you teach on Ethics in Cataloging in 
a direct way. That is, do you aside time in class to talk specifically 
about ethical matters, perhaps in your advanced courses? Aside from the 
occasional discussion on AUTOCAT and the few articles that I have found 
in Library Literature, there does not seem to be much on the Ethics in 
Cataloging. I just wonder how up-and-coming catalogers learn about it. 
Thanks for considering my questions.
