WHEREAS, Edwin Mellen Press continues to litigate against Dale Askey and McMaster University; and
WHEREAS, We understand such litigation to be an attack on freedom of expression; therefore be it
RESOLVED, That YUFA librarians will refrain from acquiring titles published by Edwin Mellen until such time as Edwin Mellen ceases its litigation; and be it further
RESOLVED, That YUFA librarians urge Kansas State University and McMaster University to defray in full Mr. Askey’s legal fees in recognition of their institutional obligation to protect the academic freedom of faculty and librarians.
Passed by the Library Chapter of the York University Faculty Association, 26 February 2013.
