In this clearly written and easy-to-understand guide, Healey explains the threat of potential liabilities, and most importantly, recommends how to avoid them. This vital guide clarifies how liability issues differ not only between institutions - public libraries, academic libraries, museums - but also between varying information related jobs like reference librarianship and cataloguing. The book's introduction covers basic issues - enforcement mechanisms, defenses to claims and more and follows with specific theories - negligence, malpractice, defamation and material torts, and more. Also covered are potential sources of claims, and suggestions for actions to take should you be faced with one. Audits, checklists, and sample policies are included for those wishing to further enhance their knowledge concerning a top legal issue among today's information professionals.

Review:

"Written by the author of the seminal 1995 article that is the benchmark of scholarship on the topic of professional liability issues for librarians and information." --ARBA, November 2008

"This book provides library professionals with the information they need regarding liability issues." --InfoToday, October 2008

"...an absolute must-have for any library or company involved in the business of information." --The Midwest Book Review, January 2009

"…its usefulness to libraries of all types and sizes and its applicability to librarians, information brokers, and students means it should be found on all our book shelves." --Journal of the Medical Library Association, 98(2) April 2010

...an absolute must-have for any library or company involved in the business of information. --The Midwest Book Review, January 2009

"The book is easy to read, and includes a glossary and indexes to cases and subjects. Its practical, explanatory rather than fear-ridden approach will help librarians, archivists, curators, and information brokers understand liability issues, how to control or avoid potential liability in their work, and to know when to seek legal advice. It is highly recommended..." --The Australian Library Journal, November 2009

...an absolute must-have for any library or company involved in the business of information. --The Midwest Book Review, January 2009

"While issues of legal liability in the course of practice have long been perceived as a potential threat to librarians, archivists, museum professionals, and other information professionals, this book does an excellent job of sorting out the real liability pitfalls from a much larger number of imagined dangers...a practical and useful resource both for students preparing for careers in information and for current information professionals." --The Library Quarterly, October 2010

...an absolute must-have for any library or company involved in the business of information. --The Midwest Book Review, January 2009
