This completely updated new edition serves as a must-have guide for developing policy, responding to censorship challenges, developing a materials section program, dealing with pressure groups, and promoting access to all types of information for all types of users in the new millennium. The most-up-to-date source on ALA policies, the sixth edition is packed with new content including updated new Guidelines and Interpretations. An ALA Code of Ethics has also been added, the fundamental Freedom to Read Statement has been revised, and new chapters delve into all of the hot-button issues including the Internet, library use of filtering software, and libraries as protectors of American values. Packed with the latest information on intellectual freedom and the law, this remains the undisputed "gold standard" for protecting the true mission of all libraries.
