From the ALA Code of Ethics:
We provide the highest level of service to all library users through appropriate and usefully organized resources; equitable service policies; equitable access; and accurate, unbiased, and courteous responses to all requests.
We strive for excellence in the profession by maintaining and enhancing our own knowledge and skills, by encouraging the professional development of co-workers, and by fostering the aspirations of potential members of the profession.
We discussed the Code of Ethics last night. How might we update them 12 years after they were last approved?
Another reason, in my book, that professions should not stand still.
