PROVO, Utah (AP) -- YouTube is back at BYU.

Brigham Young University has lifted a campus internet-access block on the popular video-sharing site.

A spokeswoman for the school says administrators decided YouTube included enough educational information to lift the ban, which had been in place for a few years.

BYU originally blocked access to the site because administrators felt there was too much questionable content that could violate the school's strict, conservative standards.

The ban was lifted Friday.
