The Ethics of Information | Albert Einstein is said to have noted, ”Information is not knowledge”. Librarians and faculty members are allied in the common cause of education and arm themselves with vast arsenals of information. It is the task of both entities to transform information into knowledge. Given the reality of digitization of information in today’s world ethical issues related to technology enter into the care and handling of information. Faculty members and their students, as well as librarians, wrestle with concepts of intellectual property versus fair use, censorship versus freedom of expression, and even surveillance versus privacy. By working together we can tackle these issues and do the right thing.
