This project convinced me of the importance of responding to every thread and regularly checking in to see if my group mates had any needs that weren't being met. I appreciated our ongoing conversation and constant re-evaluation of what tasks needed to be completed next.

Heroism looks very much like drudgery on the day-to-day scale. It is tempting to long for some past period where an individual could make a real difference, but someone engaged in the work of making a difference is likely too consumed by the effort and relative unpleasantness of the task that he would not have such perspective. If faced with an injustice, instead of waiting for someone else, strive to be the one everyone was waiting for.

Everett T. Moore is representative of many of the guiding principles of library and information science. As a librarian, he conducted his work with quiet professionalism, supporting education and service at higher education institutions for many years. As an ambassador of the profession, he fought a very public battle against censorship to safeguard intellectual freedom, access, and preservation for all. His life’s work is a great example for those in Library and Information Science - believe in and pursue the day to day work of librarianship, but also be willing to stand up and fight for the core values of the profession.

In my view, good communication and flexibility were the two biggest factors that allowed this group to successfully complete this project. By responding to team member’s questions, comments, and suggestions I was able stay involved in and accountable for my part. The group aspect of the project helped me work through some the challenges that come with researching a new subject and learning a new software application.
Communication was key. My team members' constant communication via email, Skype, and our group discussion board made this project very easy to contribute to. As a result of our coordination, despite the challenges of learning Prezi - a program to which I am completely new - this group project proved easy to coordinate and complete. I am extremely grateful to my teammates for their openness, clarity, and hard work.
Gen. Douglas MacArthur
Emily Robinette
Throughout his life Everett Moore was a champion for freedom of information and the librarian's role in ensuring it. Long before he became known for his role in the
Moore v. Younger
intellectual freedom case, he spent years writing for the
ALA Bulletin's
"Intellectual Freedom Column," where he defended controversial literature such as
Tropic of Cancer
against obscenity charges and likened the challenges of school librarianship to serving in the McCarthy era due to various groups' efforts to remove contested materials (Robbins, 1996). Through it all he maintained his professionalism and kept his library peers informed of challenges to intellectual freedom across several decades. His devotion to preserving these fundamental freedoms ensures that his name will be remembered among those in the library profession.
