Description: 

Intellectual Freedom is one of the most basic values of librarianship. ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom was established in 1965 to educate about, promote, and defend intellectual freedom for library users as enshrined in the Library Bill of Rights. ALA’s partner organization, the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF), was established in 1969 as a resource to support intellectual freedom in the courts and beyond. At this fast-paced one-hour session, you will meet of ALA’s various intellectual freedom groups, get all the details on the IF programs planned for this conference and other upcoming events, and find out how you can get involved in the intellectual freedom workings of ALA and FTRF.
