History

2015 Is the Twelfth Anniversary of the Information Ethics Roundtable.

The Information Ethics Roundtable is a yearly conference that brings together information scientists, librarians, philosophers, and social scientists to discuss ethical issues such as intellectual property, intellectual freedom, and censorship. The first Information Ethics Roundtable in 2003 grew out of a debate in Library Quarterly between Doyle and Frické-Mathiesen-Fallis on the issue of “Censorship and Access to Information.” Every year since then, the roundtable has focused on another important area of information ethics.
