Title: CENSORSHIP AND SELECTION POLICIES IN PUBLIC SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY MEDIA CENTERS IN MICHIGAN
Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to identify and describe incidents of censorship which occurred within the five year period of 1973-1978 in school library media centers in Michigan. In examining the prevalence of censorship, the study also sought to determine the role and impact of selection policies in cases of censorship. Incidents of censorship were analyzed with current selection policies to determine whether the policies were used in the defenses against censorship and the relationship between the outcomes of the incidents of censorship and recommended components of policies suggested by the Intellectual Freedom Committee of the Michigan Association for Media in Education (MAME). Three research questions were developed to explore the relationship between endorsements and composition of selection policies and the outcomes of incidents of censorship which resulted in the restoration to full access of challenged titles.
