Our IT department has no library or pedagogical background. They 
block websites with no teacher/media specialist input or review. We 
are told that we may have access to blocked sites only if we can 
prove that they are necessary to a particular lesson. If the site is 
not absolutely vital to our ability to do our job, then unblocking it 
is not justified. Whole, useful swathes of the world-wide web have 
been excised...

Ah well, my reply has taken on qualities of a vent - apologies!

All the best, Alan
