Although there is significant debate over whether or not to teach creationism alongside evolution in public schools, there has been little discussion on the role of libraries and librarians in this debate. In this article I argue that academic libraries in particular have a potentially vital role to play in that the majority of science-based research takes place in institutions of higher education; and that academic libraries have an obligation to provide empirically based creation science materials because the debate centers around science. I support my argument through a brief analysis of the institutions that subscribe to the Creation Research Society Quarterly, one of the only peer-reviewed journals focusing on creation science.
