As the LIS education universe expands, so too must the domain of information and professional ethics. This session will consist of four paper presentations each representing a way the discipline of information ethics is continuing to expand. John Budd will discuss the ubiquity of ethical events in LIS practices and the realist and non-naturalist nature of professional ethics. Keren Dali will discuss her paper on the shared mission and values of information science and social work providing specific reciprocal contributions that can be made by information science and social work. Toni Samek, Ali Shiri, and Cheryl Trepanier offer a critique of the Data Science Association’s Data Science Code of Professional Conduct with a goal of generating interest in teaching and learning about the moral dimensions of data workers labor rights and responsibilities. Iulian Vamanu explores the topic of ethical decision making and seeks to bridge the gap between top-down and bottom-up approaches to decision making through the use of moral imagination. Collectively, these papers cover a variety of institutional and disciplinary foci in LIS education and represent some of the expanding boundaries of information ethics.
