A “Difficult Matter:” Discussions of “Intellectual Freedom” in Catholic Library World between 1980 and 2015
Some librarians face the “difficult matter” of balancing personally held religious values and the values supported through American Library Association (ALA) documentation such as the Code of Ethics and Library Bill of Rights. Evidence of the struggle to balance these values, especially regarding intellectual freedom, can be found through several means including the written expressions of religiously affiliated librarians (whether personally religious or affiliated with a religious institution). This poster reviews the findings of a recently conducted content analysis in which the terms "censor" and “intellectual freedom” were counted and contextualized over a 35 year period in Catholic Library World, the professional journal of the Catholic Library Association.
