London PL filtering update

Last week the London Public Library Board voted 5-4 in favour of continuing to filter most adult workstations.

Cory Doctorow nicely summed up the problem with filters in an article in the Guardian:

These systems are failures because they continue to allow the bad stuff through. They’re disasters because they block mountains of good stuff.

See my earlier post for a critique of the report presented to the Board.A   See also the letter from Alvin Schrader, current CLA president and U of A prof, to the London Public Library Board.
