Why is censorship frowned upon by librarians?
Librarians believe in the freedom of information...ALL information. Censorship curtails this freedom by restricting access of information. Librarians also believe in serving all of their diverse patron populations. A book that may have controversial subject matter to one patron might be exactly what another patron is wanting.
Subject: US History
What religion was intended for United States by the founding fathers?
The short answer is "none." There are many quotes from different founding fathers that indicate that there was to be no official religion in the United States, thus offering freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. While many of the founding fathers practiced different denominations of Christianity, it was never intended to be the official religion of the United States. Having come from the tyranny of England and fleeing religious persecution, the founding fathers knew how important the separation of church and state would be in forming the United States.
Why is exact citation important?
Exact citation is important because it will lead any reader (including your instructor) to the source of the information you are using. This is handy because (1) the reader can get further information on the subject matter, and (2) you will be verifying that you got this information from a credible source.
