What is the importance--if any--of erotica in a library collection? When is erotica pornography? What do your patrons think? Before you find yourself in the center of this controversy, read Libraries, Erotica, & Pornography--the first in-depth examination of the issues, the solutions, and their complications. Seventeen original essays share the experiences and insights of working librarians, researchers in human sexuality, a public library administrator, and library educators as well as a leading authority on erotic literature and a popular novelist. This volume contains valuable advice on deciding a policy, handling patron objections, and responding to community pressures.
