CAUT: Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has withdrawn its controversial Code of Conduct

The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) reports that Library and Archives Canada has revised it’s controversial Code of Conduct. The revised code is an improvement on the restrictions the previous code made on LAC employees, which restricted how they were permitted to express their thoughts and opinions, both professionally and privately.

While the revised code is less restrictive, employees are still strongly encouraged to report on (aka rat out) employees who do not comply with the code, which is less than ideal. The good news is that as a result of public scrutiny, LAC revised the code. Thanks to many – including Myron Groover (aka @Bibliocracy) – for raising your voices on this issue.
