A person’s right to use a library should not be denied or abridged because of origin, age, background, or views. VI. Libraries which make exhibit spaces and meeting rooms available to the public they serve should make such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use. According to the ALA document “Access to Resources and Services in the School Library Media Program,” first adopted in 1986 and amended in 1990 and 2000 (see appendix A): The school library media program plays a unique role in promoting intellectual freedom.
When the UEN began providing Internet access to Utah schools, the original plan was to allow each school district to create its own list of sites that they did not wish to be accessible. Instead, a software filtering product called Smartfilter was employed to censor access. 39 percent of the sites to which access was sought were banned by the filter, about one of every 260 requests. For school days the figure was lower, about one of every 280 requests, suggesting that attempts to access “objectionable” material were fewer on school than on public library computers.
In some cases these sites satirize teachers, school administrators, and other students, sometimes crudely, and schools have reacted by attempting to discipline the students. For example, a school near Akron, Ohio, tried to expel a student for calling the school “a living hell” on his personal web site, created on a home computer. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Kansas and western Missouri represented a student who was suspended for his web site showing his school engulfed in a mushroom cloud.
