FTRW 2007 – Day 7 – An Overview of Canadian Book Challenges in 2006

Here's something that was posted to the Canadian Library Association mailing list this week that's a fitting way to end my week of FTRW posts: the results of the CLA’s Advisory Committee on
Intellectual Freedom’s web survey titled “Tracking Challenged Resources in Canadian Libraries” (PDF) for the year 2006.

This
report doesn’t include every instance of book challenges in Canada last
year but does give a good overview of some of the types of materials
that get challenged, the reasons why and the response of and/or actions
taken by the reporting library.

Thanks to Toni Samek, who is chair of that committee, for giving me permission to post this document.
