Librarians pan attack on academic freedom

By Kathy Gaynor  

Thompson Rivers University Library is deeply disturbed by the action of Edwin Mellen Press and their attempts to infringe on the academic freedom of Dale Askey and McMaster University.  TRU Library strongly believes that freedom of research, thought, and expression are required for a healthy and democratic society.   

Join us in letting Edwin Mellen Press know that faculty, libraries, and universities will not be intimidated by litigation that infringes upon academic freedom by signing this petition.
