  • Description

Librarians will find help here to understand the rights of patrons, practice "defensive law," handle censorship more effectively, and design and develop policies. The guide is divided into three sections. Part One discusses patrons' right to receive information, due process, equal protection, and right to privacy. Part Two covers statutory and other rights, including the Freedom of Information (Sunshine) Laws, copyright, the American Disabilities Act, and state and local laws. Part Three deals with library applications and details the area of legal constraints on the library user. Appendixes covering the Board of Education vs. Rico (the first school library censorship case taken by the U.S. Supreme Court), and the U.S. Freedom of Information Act round out this invaluable resource.
