2017 Indiana University Libraries Information Literacy Colloquium--New Albany, Indiana: Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

IU Libraries Information Literacy Colloquium Code of Conduct
 
Anti-Harassment Policy
We want the IU Libraries Information Literacy Colloquium to be a welcoming, supportive, and comfortable space for all participants, and we will work to make it a harassment-free environment. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
 
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, country of origin, age, disability, body size, religion, or other protected class status; intimidation; stalking; harassing or unwanted photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants violating the anti-harassment policy may be warned or asked to leave by Colloquium organizers. 
 
Recording/Social Media Policy
We see the Colloquium as a place to share information, not only with other participants, but also with those who may not be able to attend. Sessions are, by default, considered open and can be written about on social media and photographed. If you do not want your picture taken, your words to be recorded or for either photographs, or words to be attributed to you, please let other session participants know that. As a courtesy, please always ask prior to creating sound or video recordings of any sessions. Please be thoughtful and respectful with your photographs, recording, and sharing.
 
Each session can decide to adopt different rules at the beginning of the session (e.g., completely private, or no attribution without asking first) as long as session presenters inform all participants who join the session.
 
Reporting Harassment or Violations
If at any point during the Colloquium you feel uncomfortable or harassed, or if you witness any violations of these policies, please reach out to any of the Colloquium organizers, who will be introduced and identified at the opening session. You can also email maccardi @ ius.edu for less urgent matters.

This policy was copied nearly verbatim with permission from the CLAPS 2016 conference Code of Conduct, which was in turn adapted from the #critlib 2015 unconference. The original code of conduct was based on the NYC Archives Unconference Code of Conduct, which is based on the SAA Code of Conduct and the AdaCamp event policies.
