Banned Books Week 2009
Sept. 26 - Oct. 3

The Oregon Intellectual Freedom Clearinghouse (OIFC) web page has been updated: http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/intellectual.shtml#top.  You will find:

* Resources for planning your Banned Books Week displays, activities, and lessons.
* The Title Index to Challenges to library material in Oregon from 1988 to June 30, 2009.
* Resource for reviewing, updating, or writing a collection policy to protect your library and/or school if and when a challenge occurs.
* Resources for talking with a patron or parent when they approach you and ask material to be removed from the library.
* Resources for dealing with a challenge if a written request to reconsider material is submitted by the concerned parent or patron.
* Resources on the reconsideration process.
* Resources for dealing with the media and community groups.
For more complete report on challenges to books in Oregon, please visit the ACLU of Oregon at http://www.aclu-or.org/bannedbooks.  OIFC only collects data on challenged materials libraries voluntarily report.  The ACLU collects data on challenges reported to OIFC, and challenges they learn about through the media.
