The Librarian's Legal Companion provides an introduction to those areas of the law that are particularly applicable to librarians, such as premises liability, discrimination in employment, employment security, privacy in the workplace, censorship, and copyright. Tryon traces the development of the various topics, describing in lay terms the law as it now stands and presenting actual cases to show the wide variety of interpretations the courts can give of a single law. Such controversial issues as drug testing, searches, sexual harassment, and discrimination against AIDS patients are covered in an objective manner. With the ever-growing number of lawsuits in the United States, it is imperative that every librarian know the law. The Librarian's Legal Companion explains the relevant laws and what librarians must do to adhere to them, describes possible defenses if a librarian fails to comply with the laws, and lists possible penalties if a librarian is found liable or guilty.
