    • Abstract:
      A study investigated intellectual freedom and censorship in public libraries. The first part of the study focused on the issue of the relocation of controversial material. Data for this part of the study were obtained from a quantitative analysis of the placement of controversial fiction titles for older children and young adults in British Columbia public libraries. The results indicated that controversial books for older children/young adults were sometimes moved/reclassified to adult fiction sections and that avoiding or defusing censorship challenges was likely the justification for this action. The second part of the study focused on examining why the material was challenged. Data were obtained from 220 challenged books. The results demonstrated that the main reasons for the challenges included profanity, heterosexual activity, homosexuality, sexual activity deemed immoral or illegal, religion or witchcraft, violence or horror, rebellion, racism or sexism, substance use or abuse, suicide or death, crime, crude behavior, and depressing or negative themes.
