The library provides collections for students and staff to support their studies and research in line with the IFLA Statement on Libraries and Intellectual Freedom 

In particular:

  • Libraries have a responsibility both to guarantee and to facilitate access to expressions of knowledge and intellectual activity. To this end, libraries shall acquire, preserve and make available the widest variety of materials, reflecting the plurality and diversity of society.
  • Libraries shall ensure that the selection and availability of library materials and services is governed by professional considerations and not by political, moral and religious views.
  • Libraries shall acquire, organize and disseminate information freely and oppose any form of censorship.

This stance is further endorsed by Research Libraries UK and by CILIP on behalf of public libraries.

As such we do not take action in response to such requests from users to remove items from our collections.
