About the Author:

Pat Scales is a retired middle and high school librarian whose programs have been featured on the Today Show and in various professional journals. She received the ALA/Grolier Award in 1997, and was featured in Library Journal's first issue of Movers and Shakers in Libraries: People Who Are Shaping the Future of Libraries. Ms. Scales is currently the President of the Association of Library Service for Children, a division of the American Library Association and has been actively involved with ALA's Intellectual Freedom Committee for a number of years.

From School Library Journal:

This brief book uses case studies to illustrate real-life scenarios that school librarians are apt to confront, countering each situation with a recommended course of action that focuses on protecting students' First Amendment rights, intellectual freedom, and privacy. Scales includes useful documents, or links to documents, that support suggested resolutions. They include ALA resources, and court decisions and legal statutes most of which have been condensed or edited for length and include an explanation of the salient points. Each chapter offers valuable insight and will impel librarians to reflect upon the practices and policies in their own libraries. The section Internet Access provides useful information about dealing with the technology department to unblock sites by explaining the harmful to minors clause in the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). However, the focus of this section is on filtering and accessing information and there is little mention of Web 2.0 tools and a student's right to use the Internet as a forum to create and share information. While this book was published before ALA's July 2009 document Minors and Internet Interactivity, which encourages librarians to champion intellectual freedom and advocate for student access to Web 2.0 tools so they can actively participate in online learning communities, it is still a useful compendium. –Patricia N. McClune, Conestoga Valley High School, Lancaster, PA END
