Two new resources from the United for Libraries Intellectual Freedom Task Force can help library boards prepare for program, material, and access challenges:

  • “Terms and Definitions Related to Intellectual Freedom & Censorship” clearly defines the language used relating to intellectual freedom and censorship challenges.
  • “Materials Challenges: Key Library Policies to Review and Revise” reviews key components of well-constructed and legal policies and describes the policies that a library should review and/or implement to prepare for the possibility of a materials challenge.

Both tip sheets are featured on the United for Libraries resource page “Trustee Resources for Program & Material Challenges.”

The American Library Association’s “Fight Censorship” resource page includes further information on preparing for and responding to challenges, censorship legislation, how to support intellectual freedom, and more.
