Shameless Self-Promotion – Baltimore Sun Covers POPLINE Controversy
Stephanie Desmon of the Baltimore Sun published a piece yesterday on the POPLINE controversy, and included a brief quote from yours truly. If I remember correctly, we were discussing what had happened and how/why the librarians got involved (prior to the reversal of “abortion” being blocked in the database):
“The citations are still there,” said Rachel Walden, a biomedical librarian in Nashville who writes a blog called Women’s Health News. “The actual references haven’t been removed. But it’s been made quite a bit more difficult for the average user to get. Most people in this profession are really interested in people having access to information … and for it to be reliable.”
Desmon also has comments from the Presidents of the American Library Association and the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals, which I hadn’t seen until this piece. Thanks to the Sun for covering this issue.
