Intellectual freedom front lines


Writing for academic librarians in the United States, Jones (US representative and secretary to the Committee on Free Access to Information and the Freedom of Expression Committee of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) explores important issues of intellectual freedom for libraries through examination of case studies, presentation of advice on written policies, and discussion of legal decisions that have informed the American Library Association's policies. Chapters discuss rules for collection development, Internet access, the use of the academic library as a public forum, and the issue of privacy.
