How far we progressive library workers have come!

John Pateman


This account of the British-based progressive library organisation, Information for Social Change, traces its origins within the LIWO Support Group in 1994. The purpose of ISC is to promote challenges to established thinking and it has been particularly strong in examining issues of censorship, freedom and ethics within the information context. The control and mediation of information influence people's perceptions and the work of ISC is to document radical and progressive alternatives. Its main concern in Britain has been social exclusion and its contribution is outlined. The work of the Cuban Libraries Support Group is also described.
