The DoJ, official information, and libraries  
No need for me to repeat the whole story here, but briefly: the (US) Department of Justice told libraries to remove certain government publications from their collections (claiming they'd been issued by mistake). Librarians refused. The DoJ backed down.

What I found really interesting was how much coverage this is getting in the blogosphere. A lot of posts are showing up in my aggregator from blogs that have no connection with libraries. It's clear that these librarians have really touched a chord with their actions. Bravo to them!
