Call for articles

Special Issue of the Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science
Suggested title: LIS Perspectives on Privacy and Information Management

Guest editors: Jacquelyn Burkell and Alexandre Fortier
Proposed aim and scope: Information professionals have the difficult task of managing information and supporting others to do the same in an increasingly complex environment where issues of information protection, control, and ownership are of paramount importance. These issues present challenges to the practice of information professionals: for example, how can libraries adequately protect the privacy of patron information? They also invite a discussion of the role of information professionals in public education and literacy: should information professionals be responsible for public education on issues such as privacy, intellectual property, and copyright? This special issue focuses on the role of information professionals with respect to these aspects of information management.
