The study of ethics, essential for effective acquisitions librarians and collection managers, is largely missing from standard library science curriculum. New library professionals must learn about ethics in librarianship on the job, supplemented by reading, attending conferences, and participating in webinars. Guide to Ethics in Acquisitions provides an historical perspective on ethics related to acquisitions of library materials and gives practical examples of situations that require thoughtful consideration of ethical behavior. Ethical issues include:

  • conflict of interest,
  • vendor relations,
  • intellectual freedom,
  • access, and
  • privacy.
The Guide also examines
  • different ethical codes in librarianship,
  • how these codes have evolved to reflect the changes in library practice, and
  • how they impact acquisitions and related activities.
While the primary focus is on acquisitions, some of these ethical issues have direct impact on the larger collection management of the library. Consequently, the Guide also examines a collection management perspective, but only insofar as it is related to acquisitions. Written from the perspective of an academic library, the Guide to Ethics in Acquisitions can easily be used by those working in other types of libraries, such as school, public, or special.
