Ratings, Values, and Librarian's Thoughts about Common Sense Media
In case you haven't seen the debate around ratings and Common Sense Media that took place on the ALSC (Association for Library Services to Children) listserv earlier this month, this article on the ALSC blog sums up the key points, librarian concerns, and issues surrounding intellectual freedom and labeling. The article also includes links to Joyce Johnston's piece on the OIF blog titled Common Sense Media: Promoting Family Values or Dictating Them? and an updated version of a 2010 editorial from Pat Scales, titled Three Bombs, Two Lips, and a Martini Glass updated as a result of the ALSC-L discussions.
