Description

Title:Introduction to New Perspectives on Intellectual Freedom
Author(s):Robbins, Louise
Subject(s):intellectual freedom
Library Bill of Rights
Abstract:Since the adoption of the Library’s Bill of Rights by the American Library Association (ALA) in 1939, but more especially since its strengthening as the Library Bill of Rights (LBR) in 1948, librarians have come to accept the concept of intellectual freedom as central to the profession. But this acceptance came gradually, as librarians confronted challenges to their professional autonomy in book selection and collection building and as they responded to changes in the social, political, and economic environment.
