Title:Access to information: Professional responsibility and personal response
Author(s):McDonald, Frances M.
Subject(s):Children's libraries
Youth services librarians
Access to information
Abstract:While virtually all of the voluminous writing on censorship focuses on the actions of outsiders, much of the actual censorship is done by librarians. Quietly, under the guise of selection, spurred by rumors of controversy, or the tainting of an author because of continuous efforts to remove her books, a librarian removes a book, creates a restricted shelf, or neglects to buy a potentially controversial title.
