Andromeda Yelton: Historical perspective on ALA Code of Conduct

For Library Journal, Andromeda Yelton has authored a great piece on why the American Library Association needs a Code of Conduct.

Put simply, “This statement is a mechanism for addressing disputes, but it is also a declaration of values: it signals to everyone who we are. Furthermore, it’s part of an ongoing dialog about inclusion in library-related conference communities.”

Yelton provides historical perspective on the origin of the policy, including links to bloggers who share stories of harassment in the library profession.
