American Library Association adds sustainability to Core Values of Librarianship list

On Sunday, the ALA Council voted to add Sustainability to the Core Values of Librarianship list:

The foundation of modern librarianship rests on an essential set of core values that define, inform, and guide our professional practice. These values reflect the history and ongoing development of the profession and have been advanced, expanded, and refined by numerous policy statements of the American Library Association.

This list is used to teach graduate students who are pursuing their Masters in Library & Information Science degrees as well as a foundational document that planning, strategic and institutional decisions are made against. Read the full resolution here.
