When The Goalposts Move: Government Information, Classification, and Censorship

Document Type


Publication Date



This article reviews forty years of executive orders on classified information to compare what has changed over time. Over time, scholars note a negative impact on their work and what the public knows. This begs the question of what librarians can do in response to the limitations placed on access to information via executive orders. How librarians address these issues and how we can frame the issues in our approaches rounds out the discussion.
