Abstract
Discusses various ethical issues which are germane to the global information age. Argues that such profuse and rapid technological change demands a reexamination of how society is defined and understood in this increasingly global environment where technology bridges temporal and spatial boundaries. Alongside the comes the necessity for a reevaluation of societal and informational values. Discusses cross-cultural problems associated with the information age; philosophical aspects of technology; and problems of social equity arising from the concept of information rich versus the information poor. Considers the ethical role of libraries in the information age concluding that libraries can dissolve the lines that have been drawn between the have and the have-nots. Librarians must understand and adhere to their traditional ethical guidelines while also moving forward and readjusting wit - not to - technology
