Sorry if this has already been posted, but I just learned about this new resource and thought some of you might be interested. According to an ALA press release<http://www.ala.org/news/member-news/2019/02/hateful-conduct-libraries-new-ala-resource>, "[T]he Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) and the Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) launched a new  resource, 'Hateful Conduct in Libraries: Supporting Library Workers and Patrons<http://www.ala.org/advocacy/hatefulconduct>.' This document, created collaboratively by the two offices, responds to requests and inquiries by ALA members seeking to address a spike in reported hate crimes in libraries across the United States, which the two offices began tracking in 2016...[it] outlines best practices on how to create environments that discourage hate speech and hateful conduct in the library, example steps of what library workers should do after an incident, and how libraries can better meet community needs..."
