Libraries: A Misunderstood American Value.
Pinnell-Stephens, June
American Libraries, v30 n6 p76,78,80-81 Jun-Jul 1999
Explains libraries' roles in protecting intellectual freedom. Outlines these faulty impressions: librarians endorse the content of their collections; "everyone" agrees on controversial material; representation of all viewpoints means equal numbers; and denial of reconsideration requests indicates librarians don't take challenges seriously. Discusses legal issues that underlie library policies. Includes a sidebar by Barbara Jones on academic aspects of intellectual freedom. (AEF)
