Internet filtering information

Filtering Facts is a newly improved website maintained by David Burt, a former librarian with professional interest in internet filtering (his concern about protecting children from pornography on the Internet led him to start Filtering Facts, a nonprofit organization that encourages libraries to voluntarily adopt filters). The website is an excellent reference resource for anything related to internet filtering and filtering software. It includes a legal page with exhaustive coverage of US legislation and caselaw involving internet filtering. There is also a library policy page that has a list of many public libraries that use Internet filtering software, including links to all the library internet policies online. In addition there is a lot of information about internet filtering and filtering software, including research and legal papers about filtering software and reviews of filtering software products.

Thank you for bring this new David Burt web site to everyone's attention. He is a (if not the) major source of information in this area. Even I include on my own web site his testimony before Congress entitled DANGEROUS ACCESS, 2000 EDITION: Uncovering Internet Pornography in America's Libraries.

Thanks again.
