Censoring. Boston Public Library President Bernie Margolis. (english)
30 Sep 2003
Speak up about the censoring at our Boston Public Library departments
Our Boston Public Library Department curatorial departments librarians
have censored their reports, censored city and state consultants' studies
and censored city and state consultants' reports about public libraries
collections and services. BPL President Bernie Margolis is in denial
about the lack of availability of background information
about our public libraries collections and services.

President Margolis delegated BPL Operations Director R. Kowal as so called
freedom of information officer only to improperly deny, delay or
apply punitive additional fees for public information contrary
to ethical and intellectual freedom principles. Reference enquiries have been
sent to city hall contrary to established principles of reference desk services
guidelines at

Public libraries users, public libraries personnel and public libraries unions
collective bargaining labor relations advocates do not have available to us
the basic public library services and the free inquiry to read this
public information held at our public libraries reference desks.

Other cities' public libraries have also censored in this manner for which
our Boston Public Library Department is a model of a bad example.

More information about the lacking practices of the ethical guidelines
for Boston Public Library Departments reference desk services...
