Continuing the line of research dealing with the attitudes of professional librarians toward intellectual freedom, this study reaffirms the gap between professional beliefs and practices. In addition to looking at demographic variables and personal characteristics, this study of secondary school librarians examines the relationship between moral reasoning and attitudes toward intellectual freedom and censorship. The findings verify previous studies, provide additional information and add to the emerging picture of characteristics of librarians that contribute to upholding the principles of their profession. An overview of intellectual freedom and censorship research and relevant moral development research are included. The book is indexed. Intellectual freedom activists will find data to support their efforts to explain the discrepancy between professional values and professional behavior. Library educators will be challenged to examine their freedom of access curriculum and their teaching methods. Researchers will be pointed to the needed next stage of intellectual freedom research. Librarians and other educators will find insights into the conflict between their belief in the "Library Bill of Rights" and "Freedom to Read" documents and self-censorship and other restrictive practices in school libraries.

By placing its professional expertise in the service of maintaining the democratic values of free expression and pluralism, American librarianship not only defended its professional autonomy in the area of book selection, but also developed an ideology of intellectual freedom and claimed its defense as a central jurisdiction. Through extensive use of primary source material, this volume charts the library profession's journey from the adoption of the 1939 Library's Bill of Rights to the 1969 development of the Freedom to Read Foundation. The book argues that the ALA was reluctant to fund support for intellectual freedom, and that the ALA's executive board was extremely cautious and seldom took leadership in intellectual freedom matters.

The substantively revised policies include: Policy on Government Intimidation; The Freedom to Read Statement; and the Policy Concerning Confidentiality of Information about Library Users. New articles from leading experts address timely issues. Now, like never before, libraries must stand strong as beacons of intellectual freedom for all.

The library controls access to information by the very act of selecting materials, and must, therefore, deal with censorship on a basic level. The author has surveyed a response group of practicing librarians with questions that target some of the toughest questions librarians ever face. Curry's analysis focuses on the factors—personal beliefs, professional ethics, political pressures—that influence responses.
