Prerequisite(s): Admission to the Library Technician Post Diploma Certificate program
This course will examine how information rights can shape the services provided in information centres. The digitization of information and shifting formats creates numerous uncertainties and tensions between information privacy and access. Students will look at information privacy and freedom of information legislation, issues relating censorship, and the ethics of providing fair and equitable access. Students will also have the opportunity to focus their studies on specific aspects of information rights as it relates to their own employment situations.
