Abstract

Since many decades, library associations across the world are developing and promoting the code of ethics for the Library and Information Science (LIS) profession. This paper addresses the existing professional ethics of information technology (IT) organisations and LIS associations. Since LIS profession is trending equally with IT profession, it is necessary to look at the code of ethics of IT organisations. This paper emphasises that fineness in the LIS profession can be achieved by developing and adopting code of ethics for library professionals in India.
