Intellectual Freedom and the Library Trustee
Download to my calendar
What is the role of public library Trustees in dealing with and advocating for intellectual freedom issues? Often the first contact Trustees have with intellectual freedom as an issue is when there is a challenge against some item on the shelf or some other controversy arises. Once this crisis emerges they are scrambling to understand the issues and respond to their constituents. Another important role for Trustees is to be advocates for intellectual freedom. This session is intended to help Trustees understand the issues and their role in defending intellectual freedom.
