Upcoming Session

Censorship Beyond Books: Library Resources and Services Under Fire

Wednesday, August 14, 2019
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)

Register: https://bit.ly/2KLZXXF

Description: Learn about the wide variety of challenges libraries have faced this past year and how to prepare for them. While the profession is well-versed in protecting the right to read books, many libraries lack policies and experience in protecting the right to access information and services beyond books, often in the form of content created by their staff. You may be surprised at what other types of censoring happens in libraries that don’t include books.
