Hunter raised the issue of filtering again with [head librarian] Wofford and stated that she thought the filtering of the websites she sought to view was improper and the classification of Native American cultural and religious history and practices as the “occult” and “criminal skills” was misleading and derogatory.

Wofford responded that it was up to the filtering system which websites library patrons could view and that she only allows people to view blocked websites if it pertains to their job, if they are writing a paper, or if she determined that they otherwise have a legitimate reason to view the content.

via Library computers can block porn—but Wicca? ACLU says no.

I am glad that’s not my head librarian.
