Full Description

Stephen Almagnos career as a professor of library science began with the University of Pittsburgh in 1971. In 1990, he became the first professor in the United States to teach an information ethics course in a library and information science program. Almagnos work in the area of information ethics was recognized at the 2001 "Ethics of Electronic Information in the 21st Century" symposium held at the University of Memphis on October 18-21, 2001, upon the occasion of his retirement from the University of Pittsburgh. The essays in this book were presented at the symposium honoring Almagno. The first section of the book features papers that pay special tribute to Almagno. The second contains papers on library issues and ethics, such as the ethics of electronic information in China and eastern Europe, the organizations that represent information professionals, the ethics of user privacy in the digital library, and ethical implications of e-commerce, to name just a few. The third section covers topical issues, such as Internet plagiarism, ethical hacking and the security justification, social democracy and information media policy, and the ethics of dialogue, among others.
