ALA Speaks Out Against Recent Altered Photos in Archives

ALA published a statement “in response to reports that trusted cultural institutions have altered or excluded photographs from exhibits that included protest signs unflattering to our current administration.” It states:

The American Library Association has long affirmed that any alteration, deletion, or editing of materials held by a library or archives, when done for the purpose of avoiding controversy or concealing the truth, is an act of censorship that is inconsistent with ALA’s core values. We call on all institutions and those who work for them to resist such censorship in conformity with ALA’s Library Bill of Rights and its Interpretation on the Expurgation of Library Resources, and express our deep concern about recent claims that historic photographs have been altered or excluded by libraries and institutions charged with preserving these materials.

For more information, read the press release.
