Abstract: The paper examines the effect of librarians changing environments and how it can be influenced by the application of ethical principles and theories to attain effective and efficient service delivery. This is necessitated to attune librarians to contemporary issues affecting decision making and the persisting ridiculing of the profession by inconsistent and unjustified actions. The paper admits that librarian's working environment will continue to change, and that best practices are relative (situational, the environment induced and the client determine), but very attainable. It is recommended that librarians maintain their supervisory and facilitation roles to ease accessibility, retrieval and storing of information resources to satisfy and conform to clients changing information needs and behaviours. It addition, encourages librarians to engage themselves in self-learning, attending numerous capacity building trainings on ethical concerns to enhance sound judgments, awareness of ethical dimensions and the changing client knowledge quest.
