1.  Comstockery (KOM-stok-uh-ree, KUM-) noun 
   Censorship of literature and other forms of expression and communication 
   because of perceived immorality or obscenity. 
[After Anthony COMSTOCK.] 
WORD HISTORY: Bowdlerism, named after Dr. Thomas Bowdler (1754-1825), has 
been around longer than Comstockery, named for Anthony Comstock (1844-1915). 
All Bowdler did to enter the world of common nouns was to expurgate 
Shakespeare, the Bible, and Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the 
Roman Empire. On the other hand, Comstock, the organizer and secretary of 
the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, helped destroy 160 tons 
of literature and pictures that he deemed immoral. Comstockery, the word 
honoring his achievements, is first recorded in 1905 in a letter by George 
Bernard Shaw to the New York Times: "Comstockery is the world's standing 
Joke at the expense of the United States.... It confirms the deep-seated 
conviction of the Old World that America is a provincial place, a second 
rate country-town civilization after all.". 
   "The best argument for upholding this electronic Comstockery can be 
   summed up in a single world: zoning."

Digital Image Access Project--Duke University RBMSL [frames] 
The Duke University Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library 
has made this image base of 1,000 images depicting urban life at various 
time periods, primarily in the American South, available. The images are 
drawn from fourteen separate collections; they can be browsed and searched. 
Included with the images are descriptive summaries, scope and content 
notes, and subject terms for each collection. Among the interesting 
non-Southern images are the William Gedney documentary photograph 
collection and the Philippine Island and Far East Photograph Albums, ca. 
1899-1902. [JS]

The Agreement: Agreement Reached in the Multi-party Negotiations--Proposed 
    Northern Ireland Peace Agreement 
The Northern Ireland Office of the UK government has made available full 
text of the historic proposed peace treaty for Northern Ireland. Aimed at 
ending many years of sectarian violence, the treaty was reached after 
arduous and intense negotiations. The agreement is to be voted upon by the 
people of both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic in late May, 1998.

Dr. Graham Dark of the Gray Laboratory Cancer Research Trust (UK), provides 
this staggering resource, with over 46,000 brief definitions of terms 
related to "biochemistry, cell biology, chemistry, medicine, molecular 
biology, physics, plant biology, radiobiology, science and technology." 
Each definition is cross linked to other definitions. The dictionary can be 
browsed alphabetically or by topic, as well as searched. This powerful

 From AFAS-L: 
SCIENCE magazine for 4/17/98 published an article, "Bridging the 
Racial Divide on the Internet" on African-American use of the 
WWW; you've probably heard some of the commentary on CNN, AP 
wires, etc.  You can get a longer version of the article from 
Our good friends at Project 2000.  I haven't read the article myself, 
as of yet, but it looks promising.

over 30 archival photographs with accompanying text and lesson plans for 
educators.  The website extends this portfolio with an interactive 
timeline and database of artists, writers and musicians.  Both the 
database and timeline are in early stages of development, and will 
continue to expand during the coming months to include additional 
biographies and musical examples.

15. Excerpts from Zoia Horn's memoirs, on her experience with Judith Krug 
>From _Zoia! Memoirs of Zoia Horn, Battler for the People's Right to Know_ 
McFarland & Company, Inc., 1995 
"It may be that Mrs. Krug wanted to make sure that the film project (The 
Speaker) was quickly and efficiently done with no delays that might come 
from open-ended discussion.  However, what actually occurred was a 
secretive, undemocratic process that excluded the very people who were the 
official sponsors of the project, the IFC members..."  (p. 203) 
"The film was racist and mischievous in the way it contrived to test 
commitment to free speech."  (p.205) 
	"I saw misrepresentation used in the promotion of The Speaker.  In 
addition to the falsely claimed award, there were pages upon pages of 
complimentary comments about the film sent to me, and I assumed to others 
as well, with no hint as to who had made those comments." 
	"Still more, there had been a singular lack of reporting in the OIF 
publications on the conflict raised by the film at the ALA conference in 
Detroit.  The fact that the difference of opinions were well reported in 
other library periodicals did not justify this absence of proper coverage 
and discussion of the issues which were raised at that time." 
	The Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom, where one would expect the 
fullest coverage, was significantly silent, except for a brief reference to 
the "Controversy over _The Speaker_" (September 1977).  This despite the 
fact that Mrs. Krug regarded the _Newsletter_  "principally as a research 
	...On a personal level, my name appeared on the front page of the 
_Newsletter_ during my tenure as IFC chair.  I was indignant that such 
unbalance, manipulative reporting on the subject of _The Speaker_ might be 
contrued as having been endorsed by me.  The _Newsletter on Intellectual 
Freedom_ is a product of the Office for Intellectual Freedom, and Judith 
is its editor.  The Intellectual Freedom Committee is not involved." (p.219)

I just read that the U.S.Supreme Court has let stand the 4th Circuit's 
decision in Rice v. Paladin Enterprises, Inc.,128 F.3d 233.  There, the 
Court held that the publisher of a hit-man manual is not shielded by the 
First Amendment from wrongful death liability to a murder victim's survivors. 
Please read this case.   I wonder if it will force publishers of "out of 
the mainstream" materials to think eight or nine times about what they

Colleagues:  As some of you may know, the University of California at 
Berkeley's libraries have fallen on hard times.  The

cooperative collection development and planning for the digital age that 
is of interest to academic and public libraries.

on Library and the head of the law school library (formerly dean of the

SAN FRANCISCO (20 March 1998) -- The San Francisco Board of Education 
unanimously agreed to rewrite the ''too-white'' Western literary canon 
(Shakespeare, Chaucer, Twain), and will require the reading of books by ethnic 
authors beginning next year. 
San Francisco is the first city in the United States to adopt such a policy. 
The board did not attach a quota to the reading list. Board members Keith 
Jackson and Steve Phillips, proposal co-authors, had recommended seven of 10 
books read each year by high school students be by ethnic authors. That later 
was amended to four of 10. The approved proposal included no quotas. 
English teachers have said they already teach from a multicultural book list, 
but this proposal requires every teacher to introduce at least one book by a 
minority author at each grade level. Until now, it was previously left up to 
the teacher's discretion. 
The board decision also makes optional the reading of authors like 
Shakespeare, Chaucer and Mark Twain. One person drew applause for his comment 
that Twain used a racial epithet ''more times than Mark Fuhrman.'' 
The audience bore signs that read ''Ethnic Lit is American Lit'' and others 
that advocated the removal of writings by ''dead white European males.'' 
San Francisco's student body is 87 percent ethnic minority. 
The district's curriculum committee (parents, teachers and school officials) 
have provided a list of recommended reading. A newspaper analysis of the new 
list of 122 books shows 58.2 percent are by white authors. The old list of 261 
books was 59.4 percent white. 
''Authors of color have been treated as second-class citizens,'' said 
Phillips. ''We are saying it's time to have value and respect for every single

American youngsters participate in preschool programs at rates that are 
higher than those of their White counterparts, participation rates 
generally increase with income; African American preschoolers 
demonstrate skills comparable to the abilities of their White ounterparts in 
verbal memory skills and they scores fare below their peers on tests 
measuring vocabulary skills; African American students are less 
comfortable than White students in their school environments; and they 
are underrepresented among America's public and private school
