Final Project Topic: Censorship in Libraries

March 9, 2011

I’m considering creating a website regarding censorship and filtering in public and academic libraries. It would detail the motivations for censorship and different types of censorship, from book banning to web filtering. I previously wrote a term paper on this topic for another class and found it extremely interesting.

    I have always been very interested in the ethical dilemmas of librarianship, and censorship fits in with that. Awesome topic.

    I think censorship would be a good topic. Would you be including censorship as it relates to the bias of those people who are in charge of buying new materials?

      Yes. That’s definitely one of the major sources of censorship.
