Western Libraries

Western Libraries supports McMaster Librarian

Western Libraries supports the joint statement from the Canadian Association of Research Libraries and the Association of Research Libraries with respect to the libel suit against Dale Askey, and urges Edwin Mellen Press to withdraw this suit which Western Libraries considers to be an affront to academic freedom.

Future purchase of Mellen Press titles will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
