IF7: Intellectual Freedom Round Table

I learned about the “first-ever Intellectual Freedom Round Table preconference to celebrate the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights” from an AL Direct, link to Don Wood’s Library 2.0 blog entry. I wish I could go, because it includes these topics:

  • A librarian is accused of sexual harassment because he recommended a controversial book
  • Internet filtering is supposed to prevent a hostile work environment in a private university setting
  • A librarian refuses to give police library circulation records without a subpoena
  • A librarian receives a National Security Letter (NSL) from the FBI
  • A book challenge provides an opportunity to help school administrators understand the practicality and importance of the Library Bill of Rights
  • Gay and lesbian library displays are challenged
  • A local challenge involving erotica occurs

This entry is part of my Intellectual Freedom series.
