Letter of Support for Dale Askey

WLUFA wishes to express its strong support of our colleague Associate University Librarian Dale Askey of McMaster University who has been sued by the Edwin Mellen Press. We view this suit as a direct threat to academic freedom and an attempt to intimidate and censor free speech.

We stand by the joint statement of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and join our colleagues across Canada and internationally in urging Edwin Mellon Press to withdraw its libel suit.
