Ethics of Information Organization
May 22-23, 2009
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
http://www.cipr.uwm.edu/ioethics.html

Information organization (IO), like other major functions of the  
information profession, faces many ethical challenges. In the IO  
literature, ethical concerns have been raised with regard to, for  
example, the role of national and international IO standards,  
providing subject access to information, deprofessionalization and  
outsourcing of IO, education of IO professionals, and the effects of  
globalization. These issues, and others like them, have serious  
implications for quality and equity in information access. The Center  
for Information Policy Research and the Information Organization  
Research Group at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee join in  
presenting this conference to address the ethics of information  
organization.

Keynote Speakers:
* Clare Beghtol, Professor, University of Toronto, Canada
* José Augusto Chaves Guimarães, Professor, Universidade Estadual  
Paulista, Brazil
* Janet Swan Hill, Professor, Associate Director for Technical  
Services, University of Colorado at Boulder Libraries, USA
