Book Selection and Intellectual Freedom by LeRoy Charles Merritt

Summary:

Aimed at MLS students and anyone interested in intellectual freedom/censorship. Guidelines on how to write a selection policy fend off complaints and censors, and basic essential library documents are included within. Selection policies contain Adult book selection, Young Adult book selection, and Children’s book selection.

Opinion:

As a future MLS student and current library employee, this book has helped me understand the book selection process and why some books are chosen over others.
