If I were faculty at OSU, I'd be questioning his selections, but not 
his right to suggest alternate viewpoints.  Santorum's book in 
particular is deliberately abrasive and unhelpful to any civil 
discussion. As was pointed out, none of the works he listed pass 
muster as scholarly.  There are far less inflammatory titles that 
present a conservative viewpoint on these subjects.  But more to the 
point, I'd be questioning Mr. Savage's commitment to his professional 
ethics.  As a librarian, tasked with providing suggestions of 
scholarly works for a reading list, he instead suggests four 
questionable works that work to inflame passions and incite hate 
rather than encourage discussion and reasoned debate.
