A big hurrah for the Faculty of Information and Media Studies at the University of Western Ontario for passing a motion expressing concern about filters being applied to adult workstations at the London Public Library. I wish I had some buttons left to send you. They write:
We are sympathetic to concerns about the harm caused by violence and pornography. However, expanding internet filtering software to block access to content throughout the public library is a technological solution that, in our view, is ill-suited to complex social problems. We therefore respectfully call on the London Public Library Board to reject the continued implementation of the internet filtering project.
