[Libs-Or] PL social software policies

I'm getting ready to "discuss" the idea of interactive library web pages
with our county counsel. In the past, the lawyers have been very nervous
about blogs, etc., because they think we might be creating an "open
forum" which would then be out of control!

 

Do any Oregon public libraries currently have web pages which encourage
public comment-blogs, forums, online book groups, etc? If so, how are
they moderated? Do they allow anonymous comments? We would be requiring
registration with a valid email address (which would not, of course, be
posted). I'm wondering about a "Social Software Policy" such as this one

http://libwww.washoecounty.us/mod.php?mod=userpage&menu=120605&page_id=2
21.

 

Does anyone have such a policy in place?
