Title: The FBI creates an awareness of librarian ethics: An opinionated historical review
Author(s): Shields, Gerald R.
Subject(s): Librarians --Professional ethics Ethics Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
Abstract: Such blatant manipulation of the facts by the FBI seems to point to mere justification for a "fishing expedition" and a cynical awareness that the very idea planted in the public mind that the FBI is watching the use of libraries by individuals will have a chilling effect which can help accomplish a reduction in the use of scientific and technical information. The people gathered together at this conference are here to try and determine if it is within their power to inspire a righting of these wrongs, if there is something in their calling as librarians that can inspire them to action.
