The Core Values of Librarianship

While sorting out old images, I came across with this picture, the core values of Librarianship. These are the blocks and stones that define us… Librarians.

Generally, there are 11 values that each librarian should believe and uphold. These are our commandments; our values; our honour; our codes… our sacred codes. By these lines, every librarian must believe.

  • Access
  • Confidentiality/Privacy
  • Democracy
  • Diversity
  • Education and Lifelong Learning
  • Intellectual Freedom
  • Preservation
  • The Public Good
  • Professionalism
  • Service
  • Social Responsibility

No! I am not going to explain these word by word. Head up to ALA: Core Values of Librarianship to learn more.

Until then.

May you be a learned Person
