Intellectual Freedom and Censorship in the Library
Cooper, Jessica L.
Community & Junior College Libraries, v16 n4 p218-224 2010
The article gives a brief description of intellectual freedom and censorship in order to set a foundation for looking into the library community's role in advocating for intellectual freedom and combating censorship. Focus is given to the unique challenges of school libraries in fulfilling the larger library community's expectations in these two endeavors. The article then puts forth suggestions to school librarians on how to uphold intellectual freedom and to suppress efforts towards censorship while also serving the best interests of their patrons.
