Considerando que a atuação do bibliotecário é permeada pela dicotomia entre a não neutralidade do processo de organização e representação do conhecimento e o compromisso ético em buscar corresponder as necessidades informacionais de uma comunidade usuária cada vez mais culturalmente diversificada, destacam-se as possíveis tensões que podem ocorrer nesse contexto, em especial quanto aos valores éticos que permeiam a atuação do bibliotecário. Desse modo, este artigo propõe-se a apresentar um cenário teórico no que tange os valores e problemas éticos que permeiam os processos de organização e representação do conhecimento a partir de um panorama teórico que abrange vinte e dois anos – 1990 a 2012 − da literatura internacional da área de Biblioteconomia e Ciência da Informação.


Palavras-chave


Ética em organização e representação do conhecimento; Dilemas éticos na Biblioteconomia; Valores éticos em representação de assunto.
