TCO of Filtering: Who Knows? Anyone?

CIPA compliance needs much better TCO (Total Cost Of Ownership) analysis than we’ve seen to date. Some libraries have determined that compliance with CIPA–including convoluted responses to adult permissions issues–isn’t worth it, financially. It would be great for libraries to speak up (anonymously, if it suits their needs) and talk to others about what their own TCO analyses yielded and how that affected their decisions.

Libraries, feel free to comment. (Actually, that should be “librarians,” as buildings rarely speak for themselves.)
