Online information resources constitute a very large percentage of the information used by students in their research. With the use of these online resources comes the risk of exposure to unwanted materials such as pornography. Not all pornography is illegal. South African law defines what content constitutes illegal pornography under the category of obscene content. A taxonomy of pornography was developed to identify the different sub-categories of pornography. With the increase and ease of access to pornography on the Internet, educational institutions need to take action to prevent any negativity from exposure to such content. This paper reports on the second phase empirical results of a quantitative survey done on the five campuses of the newly merged University of Johannesburg.
