Amy Leota Shropshire

Abstract


Public Library Collections in the Balance: Censorship, Inclusivity and Truth, by Jennifer Downey, focuses tightly on issues of self-censorship in collection development, as well as community challenges. It features constant reminders of the First Amendment and Library Bill of Rights as guides for appropriate policy and institutional framework, particularly in collection development. The author also presents some unique and multi-faceted challenges and examples of situations of censorship, to aid librarians involved in collection development and policy making.
