I would not see it as my job to pursue a challenge beyond the District level.  I 
would see it as my job to make sure that the district had a written and approved 
collection development policy.  I would see it as my job to work within the 
guidelines of that collection development policy and purchase quality materials 
with a recognition that not all of the materials I purchased would be appropriate 
for every one of my students, but that it was essential to have a wide enough 
selection of materials so that I was serving every single one of those students.   
I would not err on the side of caution. When there was a challenge I would let it 
run its course and then let it go.

It would certainly be risking one's job to operate with no written and approved 
collection development policy.  I have learned enough that, when I graduate in May, 
I don't intend to become employed in that sort of risky business.
