A parent asks you to remove a book from the shelf because she feels it could harm her children.
A library user complains that the current collection of magazines doesn’t include his political viewpoint and too much of a different one?

What do you do?

Learn techniques to approach these challenges and others, along with a firm background of intellectual freedom in libraries, including relevant laws and court cases.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

•        Identify and interpret key ALA documents, policies, and decisions related to intellectual freedom, both in print and online

•        Identify and understand holdings in key court cases on intellectual freedom in libraries

•        Understand how the law treats different libraries - academic, school and public.

•        Understand the types of speech that are not protected by the First Amendment, and when to call the police to report child pornography

•        Develop skills for recognizing and strategies for responding to challenges

This webinar will be of interest to library staff at all levels in any type of library. It will be particularly beneficial for those who are relatively new to the library field and who have not had any formal training in the core values of the profession.
