Collection management policy - section 6 - controversial materials

  • In accordance with the Library Association's Intellectual Freedom and Censorship statement, Oxford Brookes University Library supports the reader's right to choose. Intellectual freedom is an essential value in the life and work of any university.

    Accordingly, the Library purchases materials that represent a wide variety of viewpoints.

    The Library does not censor materials on the basis of the author or subject's race, gender, sexuality, creed, nationality, religion, political party, social affiliations, beliefs or opinions.

    The inclusion in the Library's collections of works that some groups might find offensive does not constitute endorsement or promotion of the works in question.

    The Library does not add or withdraw, at the request of any individual or group, material that has been excluded or chosen on the basis of the policies and principles outlined in this document.
