Paul D. Healey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Mr. Healey explores a popular theme in library literature: the fear that librarians can incur liability for activities conducted at the reference desk. He concludes that librarian liability is a myth, finding no reported court decisions or any established legal theory to support the concept.
