Linking Policy

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) agency site links to content and tools that help the library community. Links will go directly to the most relevant pages, not necessarily to organizational home pages.

General policy

At our discretion, we may link to websites that:

  • Contain current, accurate, and authoritative content useful or of interest to the Massachusetts library community
  • Are accessible to users with disabilities

We will not link to websites that:

  • Are associated with political or advocacy groups for a political party, organization, or candidate running for office
  • Promote or exhibit hate, bias, discrimination, pornography, libelous or otherwise defamatory content
  • Promote any religion or religious viewpoint

Links to external websites

The MBLC agency website contains links to other sites.

  • When you follow a link to another site, you are no longer on the MBLC Agency Site and are subject to the privacy policies and practices of the new site.
  • The MBLC has no control over and is not responsible for the information, practices or content contained on these or any other sites, including your participation on promotions or services of any kind.
  • Links from the MBLC Agency Site to other sites, or from other sites to the MBLC Agency Site, do not constitute an endorsement by the MBLC. These links are for convenience only. It is the responsibility of the user to evaluate the content and usefulness of information obtained from other sites.
