Abstract

Modern informational professionals face ethical considerations in every aspect of their work, from the way they design information systems to the choices they make about information accessibility, its description, and its organization. In the past several years, these issues have been at the center of public discourse with major controversies surrounding social media site algorithms, recurrent hacking of consumer data, and information trustworthiness. In this environment, an introductory text that outlines the issues facing the information profession is essential.
