Internet Filtering

Recently we heard several libraries asking about Internet filtering software. We did some research and prepared CIPA Filtering for E-Rate Compliance : Product Options for Small Public Libraries.

This brief guide provides a short overview, along with a list of potential software options. This is not comprehensive, and CLiC is not promoting any specific product.

Library best practice is to develop public policies regarding Internet use and CIPA filtering.

Have questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact the Colleague on Call team.
