Request for Reconsideration of Library and LRC Material
The Library Bill of Rights applies without exception to all purchases of library materials. The test of an item will be its contribution, direct and indirect, to the programs of the college, to the needs of the students, and to the obligation of the college to be a forum for the free exchange of all ideas in the pursuit of truth and knowledge.
Library Faculty will discuss the addition of materials which have been excluded or withdrawal of materials which have been included on the basis of the principles stated in the Palomar College General Resource Materials Selection Policies.
reconsideration must be presented to the Library Department Chair in writing on
for Reconsideration of Library and LRC Material form. The request must
include specific information as to author, title, publisher/producer, and page
number/section of each item to which objection is being made. The request must
be signed and identification given which will allow a proper reply to be made.
Should the request for
reconsideration not be settled satisfactorily through discussions between the
Library Chair and the requestor, the written specific objections shall be
submitted to an evaluation committee consisting of the President, the Assistant
Superintendent/Vice President for Instruction, the Dean of Social and Behavioral
Sciences, the President of the Faculty, and the President of the Faculty Senate
for re-evaluation. The decision of the Committee shall be subject to the
approval of the Governing Board whose decision shall be final. A written copy of
the Board's decision will be sent to the user initiating the request.
