Library Filter Chart

jay currie writes “Lori Bowen Ayre, a consultant at The Galecia Group is putting together a survey of internet filtering products suitable for libraries. Eight companies up so far. You can see pricing, shutoff options and pricing here. There is still a lot of work to be done on the presentation; but this could be a very useful place to compare filtering products.

No word on the ALA’s own efforts in this area. While the press release from the ALA President suggested that there would be an effort undertaken, it is not clear what, if any progress has been made on an ALA evaluation.

Lori’s initiative could easily become the default source for libraries looking for up to date, objective advice and information on filtering products – hey, maybe the ALA should buy the right to disseminate Lori’s results.”
