Librarians should reject the idea of removing books because they offend some people. The Australian Library and Information Association has a core values statement. One of these values is to promote the free flow of information and ideas. Similarly, the American Library Association's core values statement states that "we uphold the principles of intellectual freedom and resist all efforts to censor library resources."
Even if education ministers nip this in the bud, that doesn't mean that the problem will go away. The idea may well spread to other universities, and may well turn out to be a persistent problem. I hope that my peers in the library profession resist it. If you don't like a book, don't read it. Problem solved.
