We want to make you aware of current challenges to certain electronic resources. A lawsuit in Colorado has drawn attention to the content in electronic databases available through libraries. After a parent challenged the databases in UT, the Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN) temporarily shut off access to the EBSCO databases for all K-12 Utah students pending investigation, and on 10/19, they voted unanimously to restore access to all K-12 students. Misinformation is raising questions about databases beyond the scope of the Colorado lawsuit or UT challenge, including in Indiana.
