University of Southampton Library endorses Research Libraries UK's statement on the role of libraries in intellectual freedom:
RLUK reiterates its endorsement of the IFLA Statement on Libraries and Intellectual Freedom. In particular, we note that:
As libraries have a responsibility to carry the widest variety of materials it should be clear that the inclusion of a work in a library’s collection, on its shelves, or in its catalogues is not to be taken as in any way an endorsement of the views expressed within the work or a mark of approval of the work’s author(s).
RLUK also takes this opportunity to endorse the statement from CILIP: Intellectual Freedom, Access to Information and Censorship
