Based on a talk given at the ALCTS/CMDS meeting at ALA Midwinter 1998, argues that outsourcing approval plans to vendors creates a prejudice against the alternative press. Business is guided by the interests of corporate America rather than those of providing exposure to all points of view. Argues that as the last truly free public space in America, library managers have a duty to make alternative materials available for use and to secure the independence, integrity and accountability of America's libraries.
