Code of Conduct

WNYLRC is a member-driven organization that helps libraries build connections with each other, library users, and the larger community. We work to foster these connections in an environment of mutual respect, regardless of one’s gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, and age.

Treat all attendees, participants, speakers, and staff with respect. We will not tolerate harassing behavior in any form during WNYLRC webinars, in-person workshops, conferences, and other events organized and hosted by WNYLRC. Anyone found to be exhibiting slanderous, libelous, defamatory, or discriminatory, or other harassing behavior will be asked to leave the in-person session or removed from the online session.

This decision will be made at the discretion of WNYLRC. If you feel harassed or witness the harassment of someone else, please report this to any WNYLRC staff member in attendance at the event in question or to WNYLRC Executive Director Sheryl Knab immediately.
