OLA is strongly committed to diversity, equity and the free expression of ideas. However, OLA also expects members to conduct themselves with fundamental respect of the rights, dignity, and value of all persons. To that end, OLA has established a "Statement of Appropriate Conduct at OLA Conferences" which may be viewed here.
