Censorship and selection issues and answers for schools by Henry Reichman( file )
9 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and held by 2,144 libraries worldwide
Censorship! The word itself sparks debate, especially when the context is the public school. Since the publication of the second edition of this landmark book in 1993, wired classrooms, legal challenges, and societal shifts have changed the landscape for the free exchange of ideas. Completely revised and updated, this new edition remains the most comprehensive guide for protecting the freedom to read in schools: For school librarians and media specialists, teachers, and administrators, Reichman covers the different media (including books, school newspapers, and the Internet), the important court cases (including recent litigations involving Harry Potter, the Internet, and Huck Finn), the issues in dispute (including violence, religion, and profanity), and how the laws on the books can be incorporated into selection policies. An entire chapter is devoted to troubleshooting and answering the question of "What do we do if...?" Look no further for the best and most specific information on providing access and facing challenges to intellectual freedom

The heart of the American Library Association Guide to Information Access, however, is its extensive compilation of the basic sources for the thirty-six most frequently researched areas.

This is followed by the current electronic sources, both online and CD-ROM. Finally, the traditional sources are enumerated: periodicals, government documents, government agencies, associations, and special-interest libraries. The American Library Association Guide to Information Access will enable any reader to readily locate and access both the print and electronic research sources in virtually any field
