In 2020, has your library or school received…

  *   A request to cancel a program? (including virtual ones)
  *   A complaint about a display or exhibit? (including virtual ones)
  *   A book with hateful drawings inside or profanity marked out?
  *   A statement of concern regarding an item in your library’s collection? (including digital items)

Report<https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/oifc/report> these – and any other intellectual freedom challenges – to the Oregon Intellectual Freedom Clearinghouse<https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/oifc/home>! The more information we have, the better picture we can paint about the intellectual freedom landscape in Oregon.

The OIFC will then submit these to ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF)<http://www.ala.org/tools/challengesupport> – minus any personal or institutional information – in support of their effort to raise awareness and respond to censorship threats by creating resources for libraries.

Questions? Contact me!
