Title
On reading "The banning of books in libraries"
Source
Library review. 56(2007) no.3, S.197-199
Year
2007
Abstract
Purpose - To reflect on an editorial from an earlier issue entitled "The banning of books in libraries". Design/methodology/approach - A discussion of the argument presented in the original editorial and its connection to present-day concerns over the use and dissemination of information and links to other issues, together with the maintenance of a professional ethos in the face of those concerns. Findings - A set of moral absolutes does exist from which librarians can derive an ethos for the operation of their services. Such absolutes take on a greater significance in the complex moral climate in which we now live, but are now under threat. Practical implications - This article calls on library and information professionals to maintain their stand in the face of increasing pressures to compromise attitudes. Originality/value - Reflects on the continuing (and increased) importance of professional values.
