Library Trends 19 (1) Summer 1970: Intellectual Freedom

 

Library Trends 19 (1) Summer 1970: Intellectual Freedom. Edited by Everett T. Moore.

The intent of the issue is to consider where we stand on the matter of the freedom to read, on access to libraries in pursuit of knowledge and in enjoyment of literature and the arts. It is concerned with the ever-present threat of censorship and the restriction of the freedoms guaranteed under the United States Constitution, or similarly acknowledged by other peoples through their governments or through such expressions as that of the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1946, which stated that freedom of information is a fundamental human right.

If the issue appears to offer a series of spot checks on the state of our library freedoms here and abroad, and of our own strengths and weaknesses as librarians in the war on ignorance and unreason, the editor acknowledges that it is, in fact, just that.
