Information Ethics for Everyone
Boris Jacob, IBI, HU Berlin
Jenny Delasalle, Freelance Librarian
With the increasing presence of information and information technology in both our professional and private lifes, ethical questions are increasing too. The joint Digital Curation program of the Berlin School for Information Science and the Kings College London addresses this through a module: Information Ethics and Legal Aspects.
In this talk we want to present and discuss with the audience how students and information professionals of the future can learn to identify possible ethical problems, how they acquire the means with which to solve them, and how Berlin’s attributes contribute to that. Our young professionals can then both share and use their skills for the benefit of everyone.
Our speakers teach this module and originate from Germany and Great Britain respectively, with backgrounds in libraries, cultural institutions and publishing.
