Description
Academic freedom is the first directive encoded in the Canadian Library Association’s Code of Ethics, but when we look across our Canadian campuses, we see that while some librarians have academic freedom, most do not. The librarian’s practice, however, is limited if she or he is not able to exercise fully freedoms of thought, conscience, opinion, and expression—all of which are human rights that underlie academic freedom. These limitations will detract from the ability of the academic librarian to provide the best levels of collections and services possible. Professors should be concerned about academic freedom for the librarian not only because librarians are deserving academic colleagues whose rights are often fragile and tenuous, but also because librarians work on the front-lines of intellectual freedom battles every day as part of their contribution to the intellectual life of our campuses. Without full academic freedom, their ability to do this work is compromised. The librarian takes on such significant challenges
