ESLN Code of Conduct

ESLN strives to support an open exchange of ideas within a safe and respectful environment. We value your attendance at ESLN conferences, meetings, and events, and are dedicated to providing a positive event experience for all participants and members. We want all ESLN events to be welcoming, supportive, and comfortable for all members of the library community.

Treat ESLN staff, event attendees, and speakers with respect.

Participation in discussions and activities should be respectful at all times. All are expected to exercise tolerance of the perspectives and opinions of all present and use discretion with photographs, recordings, and sharing. Be aware of your presence, and be thoughtful in sharing, listening, and knowing when to do which.

We do not tolerate harassment in any form. If a participant engages in disruptive or harassing behavior, ESLN staff may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event. Event organizers will assist participants in contacting building/venue security or local law enforcement or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. If you are being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an ESLN  staff person immediately.
