Orenstein, David I.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Hardware and software filters, which sift through keywords placed in Internet search engines and online databases, work to limit the return of information from these sources. By their very purpose, filters exist to decrease the amount of information researchers can access. The purpose of this study is to gain insight into the perceptions key academic stakeholders hold regarding Internet filters. This study employed a mixed-methods research design to explore the perceptions of stakeholders employed at 11 Carnegie-classified institutions related to the use of Internet filters and their potential impact on academic freedom.
