Annotated Bibliography of Challenged Material Policies in Libraries

Matthew Murray

Abstract


While few librarians or libraries want to deal with the reality of patrons submitting challenges to material held in their collections, it is a reality of the position of libraries in our communities that this will happen. Because this is an area that can lead to poor representations of libraries in both the media and the general public consciousness, it is important for libraries to have fully developed policies to deal with all aspects of these challenges. This article looks at why a library needs these policies, and examines various resources concerning them.
