      [NAG Template for a Model Collection Development Policy for Public Libraries]
    • Role and purpose

    • Ethics
      Each individual in our global society has the right to a full range of library and information services. In addressing cultural and linguistic diversity, libraries should:
      serve all members of the community without discrimination based on cultural and linguistic heritage
      provide information in appropriate languages and scripts
      give access to a broad range of materials and services reflecting all communities and needs
      IFLA
    • Managing the risks
      “In the interests of intellectual freedom, material should not be rejected solely because it is considered controversial. A good library should encompass controversial issues and different perspectives in the interests of democracy and discovery.”
      MLA Guidelines on Controversial Stock
