The Library Statement on Intellectual Freedom

    The library considers it important to purchase materials representing differing opinions on controversial matters as long as they satisfy the general criteria for the selection of monographs and serials. Selection is without partisanship regarding matters of race, sex and sexual orientation, religion, or moral philosophy. Neither the unpopularity of a point of view nor the mode of expression will be used to justify censorship of an author’s works.

The Library supports the following statements on intellectual freedom:

        * The Canadian Library Association Intellectual Freedom Position Statement, Adopted 1974. Amended 1983 and 1985.
        * The Canadian Association of Research Libraries Policy Statement on Freedom of Expression, Adopted Sept. 1986.
        * The Canadian Library Association Information and Telecommunications Access Principles, Approved June, 1994.
