To me, this also means no stealing from the library or wherever, so
that the material will be there for the next person. I do not know
how many times I have been to a library to read a magazine article to
find someone has cut it out of the magazine. This seems so obvious
and yet . . . there are many selfish people out there, they just could
have gotten a photocopy.

BCG Standard 1 seems like common courtesy but still needs to be stated
the funny thing about common courtesy is that it may not be common.
out the responsibility of each of us as the middle link in the chain
past and future is important. We should not knowingly harm, or let harm,
anything in our possession or usage. It is respect for our future
generations so that they may see what we have seen.
